Seiffener Volkskunst Classic Christmas Nutcracker - Red Soldier
The most famous Nutcrackers from Germany are the Kings and Soliders and this tall Solider or "Hussar" has a braided band on his wooden helmet and a sword at his side. I chose this Nutcracker to add to our Collection when I visited the Seiffener Volkskunst studio - I was impressed the quality and attention to detail and the twinkle in his eye!
