This nutcracker figurine is of exceptional museum quality and unique, very rare indeed and impossible to find anywhere.
It is crafted by hand by a talented Russian artist N. P. We thought that there would be no more except five unique works crafted in the past. However we found the carver we thought we had lost forever. And now we are happy to introduce you a the sixth nutcracker figurine differently decorated, in the original military uniform of the officer of the Russian (19th century). We plan to make nine more of these works, which can't be all ended in the pages of our web store. Some of them directly go to the private collections.
It is carved out of one the best species of Tilia (linden wood-Amur type) and painted with red and white pale gouache and acrylic, intricate combination of colors which makes it even more eye catching and appealing. Authentic gold leaf is applied.
The stones used are:
Garnet-29, Pearl-60, Coral-36, Agate-16, Pyrite-18, Quartz-4. Total-163 semiprecious stones.
