A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.

Steinbach Nutcrackers embody the'Cycle of Life', As the seed of a nut falls to the ground, it grows into a strong tree, living over hundreds of years nourishing the woodcutters and woodcrafters.
The legends tell of a feast celebrated just before harvesting the logs of the Elder trees, w nuts and fruits were eaten as if to pass on the magic and mystery of this eternal cycle. And so on to the collectors of these exquisite wooden nutcrackers. Writers, composers and artists sang and danced the praises of the legend of the Nutcracker beginning with the novel "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice, " written sometime between 1776 and 1822, by E. This novel became the basis for Tchaikovsky's magnificent "Nutcracker Suite", which debuted as a ballet in St. Petersburg in 1892 and lives on as a holiday tradition throughout the world."If you sit down under one of these trees you might hear the rush and rustle of the tops, telling you about the German legends and the history witnessed by these trees, " says Herr Steinbach.
