These were included in an estate we purchased about 8 of them. As such we are putting them up. This Nutcracker comes from the Nutcracker Village line and was made in 1997. He stands at 12″ tall. This nutcracker and others (the others being primarily Steinbach brand) was procured from an estate that other than about 8 Nutcrackers were magic pieces from a magician who lived in our same city and was part of the Wizards of Wichita IBM magic club.
