Richard Glässer Christmas Nutcracker - Longbeard King
A small but regal King adorned with gold crown, sceptre and even shoes is designed with the modern lines of the long beard Nutcrackers of the Erzgebirge region of Germany.
Each Nutcracker from the Richard Glässer studios in Seiffen Germany is handcrafted and hand painted. I got to visit their workspace last summer and see the artisans in action.
