We are so pleased to present this Vintage Nutcracker Steinbach Oktoberfest Male with Lowenbrau Beer Stein. If your going to Germany in the fall during Oktoberfest, this is one of the things you come home with! Beautifully done with painted applied button style eyes. The following is from the Steinbach website. It will help you to understand the company history.
"The complete name of the Steinbach company is Steinbach GmbH - Vereinigte Werkstaetten Deutscher Volkskunst. It has two production plants that produce the wonderful Steinbach nutcrackers. The older plant is located in Hohenhameln, a little town in northern Germany. Originally the Steinbach company comes from the Erzgebirge but left the region because it was under Soviet control after WW2. Right after the end of Communism in Europe Christian Steinbach had built his second factory in Marienberg. Marienberg is a small town in the heart of the Erzgebirge"
DIMENSIONS: 11 ½" tall
CONDITION: very nice vintage condition his arm with the stein is loose. These pieces are put together with "pegs" so this is rather normal. I would be happy to apply a drop of glue if you'd like.
