|Ulbricht Means Handcrafted
Nutcrackers are more than just a Christmas fixture. Some nutcrackers, especially Ulbricht nutcrackers, are finely-crafted heirlooms that will grace your seasonal decor for generations to come. With extensive attention to detail, these figures capture nutcracker enthusiasts and collectors with their unique splendor.
Ulbricht nutcrackers and incense smokers began with Otto Ulbricht, a German wood craftsman who began his own family business in 1928. Ulbricht nutcrackers were particularly popular because they broke away from the classic authority image style of previous nutcrackers. Since they included a broader range of figures, Ulbricht nutcrackers set the stage for the wide variety that consumers enjoy today.
All of the Ulbricht ancestors were miners and spent their off-season time making nutcrackers to kill time and make money. Like nutcrackers are a family tradition for consumers, they are also a family tradition for Ulbricht makers, who have kept the trade in their family for three generations, maintaining the utmost quality for decades.
For nutcracker collectors, there is no finer choice than the Ulbricht nutcracker. With a wide range of rotating styles, these items are collectable treasures to invest in, since Ulbricht nutcrackers come in collector and oversized editions. Every figure that you traditionally associate with Christmas - like Dickens characters, Santa's, and kings, are included in the Ulbricht line-up. Ulbricht nutcrackers include other laypeople characters, like farmers, gardeners, and fishermen, as a nod to the salt-of-the-earth folks that silver miners - the original nutcrackers craftsmen - related to.
Complete your Nutcracker collection this year with characters from the suite ballet that made Tchaikovsky's overture so famous. Ulbricht nutcrackers are available in Clara, the Prince, and the Mouse King, which will make your Christmas traditions dance like Sugar Plum fairies in your head.
There is something down-to-earth and wholesome about the Ulbricht nutcracker. It reminds us that Christmas is about friends, family, and seasonal joy - not frenzied gift-buying with stretched credit. The color scheme of Ulbricht nutcrackers keep in line with almost all Christmas decor, which means that you will have no difficulty finding the perfect spot for your newly-acquired treasure.
