Steinbach Nutcrackers are the most cherished nutcrackers in the world and can be handed down from one generation to the next as a family heirloom. The Steinbach family started hand crafting nutcrackers in 1832 by purchasing a timber yard and an operating wood sawmill that initially ran by water power and later was converted to steam power. “To produce one nutcracker, ” explains Herr Christian Steinbach, can involve up to 130 separate procedures. At one time, the curling and natural drying to the wood could take up to 3-4 years depending upon the piece. ” The late Herr Christian Steinbach was the patriarch of the Steinbach nutcracker family, he said “A nutcracker is a symbolic figure, one that gives happiness and protects your home and family. The name Steinbach is recognized the world over for their unique wood carved and hand painted creations developed over generations by the Steinbach Family. Steinbach Nutcrackers are the most popular German nutcrackers in the world and vary greatly in price depending on their collectability, subject matter and availability.
