It was not until around 1870 (some fifty years after Hoffmann's "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" was written) that the first nutcracker in its now-familiar form was carved by Wilhelm Fuechtner (1844-1923) in his Seiffen workshop. Today, this legacy is continued by Volker Fuechtner, the great-great-grandson of Wilhelm and the sixth generation to run the family workshop in Seiffen. Since then, many other workshops have offered their own designs of nutcrackers and smoking men: we are happy to offer the finest examples, all handcrafted in the Erzgebirge.
