This Nutcracker set is a wonderful collection in a wooden box hand-painted.
The box contains 4 different characters of the Nutcracker tale. The baubles incredibily detailed.
It is based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's 1816 fairy tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. It tells the story of a little girl who goes to the Land of Sweets on Christmas Eve.
These glass ornaments have been made in the tradition of the age old European craft of hand blown glass. Each piece has been sculpted with fine detail, silvered, lacquered, and then hand painted in the most exquisite, vibrant array of colors.
The final result is beautiful.
