The nutcracker king is one of the most traditional figures, which the manufactory offers since its foundation. Here nutcrackers are produced in about 125 designs and in sizes ranging from 9 cm to 1 m. The nutcracker as a king is particularly popular, as it was the first model of this kind and looks majestic.

Impressive design and loving details
The nutcracker king impresses with its size and color scheme. With bright red and royal blue, he radiates a refreshing blaze of color. Typical details, such as the black and gold crown, the blue hood and the lovingly hand-painted face with the twirled brown mustache, make this nutcracker something very special. His soft gray hair peeks out from under the crown, hiding the lever for cracking nuts. As a majestic sign of his dignity, the nutcracker wears a golden scepter on his right side.
