A little Nutcracker History...

Nuts have always been difficult to open. Hundreds of years ago in Germany, nutcrackers were created as a practical way to open them. In the early 1800’s, humorous nutcrackers were created that looked like people for amusement and as good luck charms. On many of the nutcrackers you will find shamrocks, horseshoes or even red topped mushrooms. These were and are still today symbols of good luck and protection from evil spirits. One very popular nutcracker given to newlyweds is the chimney sweep. He is placed near the fireplace to ensure that the family has happiness and harmony in their new life.

Today, the nutcracker has become a tradition. With the popularity at Christmas of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet, one of the most popular collectors series is based on this ballet. Steinbach nutcrackers are known for their quality, attention to detail and superior craftsmanship. Hohenhameln, Marienberg Germany.
