We recently ran across one of the most rare Steinbach nutcrackers made in the last 30 years.
This fabulous nutcracker was originally created for a company in Australia. They commissioned 500 pieces to be made. Shortly after the first shipment of around 200 pieces they remaining order was cancelled. Steinbach was left with 70 more pieces that were already made and ready to ship. These 70 pieces were then sold to a few select stores here in the US. Here at Mt Olympus Clock Shop we were privileged to receive some of the remaining nutcrackers. The few we had sold very quickly and were all signed by Christian during his visit in November of 1990.
Having a nutcracker Signed by Herr Steinbach was always a fun experience. Christian was always a lively character and had many fun stories to tell.
These Hearts were drawn by Herr Steinbach when he signed the piece in 1990.
This heart and the symbols underneath have started the wear over the years.
The Kangaroo nutcracker is truly a fun and rare piece that should be truly valued by any Steinbach collector.

All of us here hope the new year is a great one for you and yours. As usual with the new year we are busy with inventory and ordering for the new year. We just got back from Atlanta after attending the 2015 Americasmart gift show. We found many great and wonderful things. Much of the time we spent wishing we had more room for new things in our store. We did get our first look at the new Steinbach and Ulbricht nutcrackers for 2015 and we are excited for what is coming in this year.
New Steinbach Nutcrackers for 2015
There are many other new non-limited pieces coming from Steinbach as well. Here are a few of the pieces we were able to preview: Hansel, Skier, Barrister and Mexican.
New Ulbricht Nutcrackers
Ulbricht is re-introducing the Christmas Carol series. The first two pieces available later this year are Scrooge and Bob Cratchit.
Here are a few other of the many new nutcrackers coming from Christian Ulbricht. Take a good look at the nutcrackers and feel free to make comments about what you think. Do you have any favorites?
We will continue to post as the year rolls forward and let you know about exciting things that arrive. We will also try to highlight other products we carry and give helpful tips.
