This regal and proud Russian Nutcracker statuette is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face and costume - as well as the base he is standing on. Please notice the details painted on his hat and costume - as well as the sword he is carrying by his side. This statue is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas and Nutcrackers are hand carved from Linden Wood.) This wonderful decoration (it does not crack nuts) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. The mouth of this Nutcracker moves and does open and close! (See pictures below of his mouth both open and closed.) This artistic Nutcracker is initialed by the artist and measures 12.5 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.
