This dignified Russian Nutcracker soldier is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist. His cloak is painted in reds, greens, whites and golds - while his hat and boots are black. Our soldier's hat is ornately painted with his military emblem and gold curly-cues and swirls while his military jacket has white swirls. He is standing at attention on a colorful base and is holding a sword by his side. This soldier's mouth really does open and close - but unfortunately this is just a decoration and is not intended to or capable of cracking nuts! This statue is lightly 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 Nutcracker statue is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is initialed by the artist. This statue measures just under 12.75 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide.
