We are delighted to present this Vintage Erzgebrige Nutcracker East German Soldier with it's Original Box.It is my understanding that when the Communist took over the East Germany all of the Erzgebrige factories that made these wonderful nutcrackers and smokers changed their styles from the fun and whimsical to strictly soldiers and more conservative pieces to appease the government. There are a couple things about this piece that lead me to believe he was made before the fall of the wall. First, the form, the soldier. Secondly his eyes which are applied not just painted on the head/face surface. My educated guess is he was made in the 1970's. PS: I'm sorry for the flash on his face, you an only take pictures so many times before you get frustrated.

DIMENSIONS: 9 ¾" tall max

CONDITION: very, very good vintage condition. One of the flaps on the box has torn away, but it is in the inside bottom.
