A quaint historical tribute, the Steinbach Baron von Steuben German Nutcracker commemorates the German-Prussian officer credited with helping to lead the Continental Army to victory in the American Revolution. He accomplished this by teaching the Army the essentials of military discipline, and instituting rigorous drilling practices. The Baron eventually became George Washington's Chief of Staff.
This one-of-a-kind figure's traditional nutcracker design, with its gruff expression and trademark grin, is based on that from treasured German folklore. Meticulously hand-carved in the renowned Steinbach factory in Germany, this decorative nutcracker is crafted from genuine wood, painted freehand, and signed by Karla Steinbach. It makes a wonderful collectable and is sure to be a family favorite for years to come.
