Antique Black Forest Hand Carved Wooden Figural Nutcracker Painted and Carved with expressive detail. Shaped as a gnome / elf / dwarf / old man wearing a hat and boots sitting on a tree stump. Handle in back opens and closes mans lower jaw. Was part of my grandparents antique collection. Believed to be from late 1800s from Black Forest region of Germany.I included a photo of the inner mouth because it almost looks like writing but if so cant make out. Item in very good condition for its age, a chip on Hat that has been painted over and other normal expected wear. The base / bottom of the stump has been lacquered with gold flecks. I havent been able to find one similar to this item which seems very rare and unique.
