The legend says that a nutcracker represents power and strength and serves like a trusty watch dog guarding your family from evil spirits. A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.
This nutcracker is unique and handpainted by Ginger Williams Cook. The hair is hand-cut strips of felt to give each soldier their signature look. This nutcracker comes in a keepsake flannel tote with leather handles for storage.
This is a collectible item and for display only (not a toy). It is a wooden nutcracker with assembled parts, painted using archival acrylic paints, and stands at 12.5 inches tall.
