Steinbach / Kurt Adler
This is a wonderful Steinbach Nutcracker from the early 2000’s.
Dorothy is an essential part of the popular Steinbach Wizard of Oz Series. The charming Dorothy stands at 15.75-inches, holds a bouquet of flowers on one arm, and carries a basket with her resin Toto on the other. She is wearing her famous blue and white checked outfit and ruby red shoes, all intricately crafted by Steinbach. Like all of Steinbach’s creations, Dorothy is intricately crafted with the finest care and attention to detail.
Officially licensed merchandise Steinbach Nutcrackers are the most cherished nutcrackers in the world and are handed down generation after generation. The Steinbach family started making nutcrackers in 1832 by purchasing a timber yard and operating a wood sawmill, which ran initially by water power and then by steam power. “To produce one nutcracker,” explains Herr Steinbach, “can involve up to 130 separate procedures. At one time, the curling and natural drying to the wood could take up to 3-4 years depending upon the piece.” Whether you are starting a new collection or adding to your existing collection, you will love these time honored pieces.
