"Russian Cuirassier", 15"H, nu51, Russian Unique Wooden Collectible Nutcracker
This nutcracker figure is crafted by hand exclusively for Alkota: masterfully carved out of one linden wood log, intricately painted with acrylic. The subject matter of the uniform is in great detail burned on wood. (Every single black dot is actual burning). 15"H. Unique. Museum quality flawless work!
This is one of a 2019 series unique nutcrackers (all of them are historic characters - Emperors, Czars Dukes, Statesmen, Marshals) designed and created by Russian artists and Alkota. Some pictures for designs were kindly shared with us by A.A. Merza, a vivid collector of wooden Nutcracker figurines which he looks for and finds all over the world.
Since the carving and decorating is a very time consuming process and nutcrackers are crafted one at a time you can order a piece of your preference and we will make it for you first and then continue working on other ones. It will take up to sixty days to get your order delivered to you. Email to us if you decided to order.
