The story of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (written by E. T. A. Hoffmann in 1816, adapted by Alexandre Dumas and set to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1892) has become one of the most popular ballet performances around Christmas time in the world. It is appealing to children and adults alike and has been a standard Christmas feature of theaters in many countries.
Russian Nutcrackers in our collection are large and small carved wood figurines.
In 2019 our firm launched the production of a a series of 12 different nutcrackers. As a result of this scrupulous work we came up with one of a kind figurines of museum quality, flawless in craft and unique in design. They are carved and painted by hand with fine burning decoration on wood.
Every single Nutcracker of this series represents a worldly known Political Dignitary, Military Commander, Russian Czar or a historic figure - real Heroes of glorious battles fought by Russians for their survival and independence - through centuries of Russian history!
With our work we pay tribute to them.
