This nutcracker is today's production of the original nutcracker made by Wilhelm Freidrich Füchtner, c. 1870. At left, in the center, one of the originals. Wilhelm Friedrich Füchtner (1844-1923), known the world over as the "Father of the Nutcracker" carved the very first nutcracker around 1870. His home workshop in Seiffen, the small toy-making village in the middle of the Erzgebirge in eastern Germany, is still the home of the finest nutcrackers Today, six generations later, Volker Füchtner honors his great-great-great grandfather by still producing nutcrackers in the old tradition in the very same home workshop- the birthplace of the nutcracker. Each Füchtner nutcracker is stamped "Füchtner - First Famiily of the Nutcracker," hand-signed by Volker Füchtner, and comes in a custom wooden crate, complete with the Füchtner family story in both German and English. This nutcracker is approximately 14" tall. The Christmas Haus prides itself on its quality merchandise. Small differences, including slight imperfections and variations in coloring and woodgrain, are what make each handcrafted piece unique.
