About this item

The French art of handicrafts presented us, until approximately 1850, with many admirable, valuable and singular nutcrackers made of wood or iron. The abundance of nuts in this country drew the imagination and the demand towards nutcrackers. French carvers differ by splendid works of high quality, carefully arranged in the detail.

Here is a screw-type beech wood nutcracker, in a form of a lion.
A similar one is located in the Museum fur Volkskultur in Schloss Waldenbuch in Wuerttenberg.
