Gingerbread World European Christmas Market 2021 - New Product for 2022Wood couldn't be more beautiful than when crafted by the artisans of Germany's Erzgebirge. The Christian Ulbricht studios have been creating colourful folk art pieces for more than 90 years.

From Tchaikovsky's famous Nutcracker Ballet, Drosselmeyer is Clara’s kind but mysterious godfather. He entertains the guests at the Christmas party with magic tricks, such as presenting clockwork toys which seem to move independently and floating objects in the air! He entrusts Clara with the precious Nutcracker doll - which this figure is holding. The Nutcracker is actually Drosselmeyer's nephew whom the Mouse King cast a spell on. Read about the characters in this fascinating ballet here.

Each Nutcracker from the Christian Ulbricht studios in Seiffen Germany is handcrafted and hand painted.
