Nutcrackers were first carved by commoners as a joke because it was considered fun to make a little wooden king or soldier do the menial work of cracking the tough nuts. Today, nutcrackers are often associated with the Christmas holiday due to their whimsical nature and the very popular Nutcracker Suite Ballet. Ornament measures approximately 4 1/2 in., made of mouth blown, hand painted glass.
