Offered here is a wonderful Black Forest Anri handcarved wooden nutcracker in the form of a Native American Indian Chief which I would estimate dates to about 1920. Measuring 9" in length and about5 1/2" across nose and feathers, it has some minor high point wear -- a bit on the nose and some on the edges of the feathers and side hide points. No other issues or repairs to report. The paint is in fine condition and the piece opens andcloses firmly.
Please be sure to check the bottom of the listing page for additional information added in response to questions. Thanks!
Condition Notes:Since certain words are open to interpretation, here is a short synopsis of the meaning we attach to various terms relevent to condition. In all cases, anything that we believe is outside the boundaries of accepted norms will be fully described in the listings. PERFECT. Implies the piece is free of chips, cracks, or hairlines. Expect reasonable signs of use and age and/or minor original manufacturing flaws. FLAWLESS: Implies that the piece was originally made without any flaws and is undamaged as outlined under PERFECT. You may expect to see some reasonable signs of use such as normal and usually validating bottom wear, but anything beyond that will not be described as FLAWLESS. MINT: A word we almost never use, implies that a piece has no flaws, no wear, no sign of use, no damage -- and to all intents and purposes, remains as pristine as the day it was made.
