Follow the yellow brick road toward the great adventures of The Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum and dedicated to children and adults. Now Steinbach has recreated this wonderful story for you through a special collection of wooden nutcrackers handmade in Germany.
In the story, Dorothy lands in Munchkinland, where Glinda the Good Witch bestows upon her the Ruby Slippers. The hand-painted Steinbach Wizard of Oz Glinda the Good Witch Nutcracker is beautifully crafted and featured wearing a pink dress embellished with silver stars and tulle. She holds her wand and a bunch of flowers.
Hand-crafted from the finest materials, Glinda the Good Witch stands 18 inches tall and is the seventh in Steinbach's magnificent series of Wizard of Oz nutcrackers.
This nutcracker is a delightful addition to any collection and is sure to become a family heirloom. Glinda the Good Witch is available unsigned, or signed with Herr Christian Steinbach's signature.
The Steinbach nutcracker tradition began centuries ago in the Alpine regions of Germany. In legend, the nutcracker possessed miraculous powers, bringing good fortune and protection from evil spirits, and the more elaborate their decorations, the stronger their powers. The Steinbach family began producing wood products in 1832. Today, Herr Steinbach and his daughter, Karla, continue the tradition. Steinbach Nutcrackers are timeless family heirlooms to pass down from generation to generation.
Each Steinbach Nutcracker is created using eight major processes - from the cutting of the wood to the hand-painting of details - and can involve up to 130 separate procedures. Each hand-crafted Steinbach Nutcracker is made in Germany by the artisans at the renowned Steinbach factory. The history, quality, detail, and superior craftsmanship of Steinbach nutcrackers is unmatched.
