Wolves play a big part in traditional German lore, which makes the Kurt Adler Steinbach Chubby Wolf Nutcracker a classic and unique addition to your German collection. This nutcracker is hand-crafted of solid wood, artistically painted, and embellished in Germany. This wolf character is painted in grey and brown and accented by faux grey fur. From his pointy ears to long, bushy tail, this wolf has style. He stands on a grass green base. He would make a fun statement if paired with the Chubby Little Red Riding Hood Nutcracker (not included).
About Kurt S. Adler Inc.
The story of Kurt S. Adler Inc. begins after the close of World War II when Mr. Adler tried his hand at exporting general goods. Business grew, and European economies flourished so he turned his focus to importing. Ornaments were offered by the 1950s, and beautiful, handmade angels from East and West Germany found an enthusiastic audience in America. Adler expanded the line to glass ornaments from Czechoslovakia, hanging ceiling decorations from Germany, and miniature lights from Italy.
The next decade, Adler started importing holiday decor from the Far East. Colorful snow globes and other animated items became a collector's favorite. In the 1980s and 90s, Fabriche Santas, nutcrackers, and other collectibles were ushered in. Recent additions include animatronics, fiber optic trees, interactive advent calendars, and synchronized musical decorations.
