The Husband and I picked up this nutcracker early in our married life at a Christmas shop. He's one of my favorite decorations. He has a sticker on the bottom that says "Original Erzgebirge" and "made in German Democratic Republic". I used to keep him out all year, but he started showing signs of age beyond his years so I now only display him at Christmas-time.


  1. He is quite handsome. I had a peek at the Erzgebirge site, looks like the make some special stuff.


  2. We bought a nutcracker at a closeout store several years ago, just a cheap knock off but I had to get up and look when I saw yours.Not identical but at least they could be brothers.
