601 Steinbach Nutcracker Happy Santa
Santa-There's an old German children's Christmas song that heralds the
coming of Santa with the words: Tomorrow children there'll be quite a
happening, tomorrow we'll rejoice in exultation. Our home will be
full of merrymaking and our hearts with joyous jubilation!
The annual arrival of Santa at
Christmas-time has much the same effect on the heart's of children the
world over. And our Happy Santa Nutcracker, like all our
nutcrackers, is no exception, fulfilling a very real function of
creating just the right Holiday spirit during this festive time.
This was in fact the reason nutcrackers were brought out every year at
Christmas. Like the original soldier nutcrackers, they preformed
their faithful duty and enhanced the Holiday atmosphere. Now
however, they are with us the whole year though and their meaning has
gone beyond a more decorative function. They have become symbolic
guarding off all evil spirits. This is why nutcrackers have large
teeth. Moreover, they have far kinder dispositions and look much
better at the entrance to your door that a lion!
Jolly St. Nick! Who imbued you with such power; that you now bring joy
to everyone all over the world the whole year through? You have a
splendid group of nutcracker pals to keep you company. They are
the pride and joy of many avid collectors.
significant breakthrough from the folkloric artistry of the individual
cottage craftsman in the Erzgebirge to the development of a serious
nutcracker industry took place in the year 1937 in Schwarzenberg at the
largest Erzgebirge exhibition of folkloric products. The patronage
of Dr. F. E. Krauss (better known as the bathtub manufacturer) and the
work of my father Ernst Otto Steinbach will never by forgotten.
They have sown for the fruits which we are harvesting today, and it
truly gives us great pleasure to know that we have made so many people
happy with our fine nutcracker creations.
