No 631 Steinbach Nutcracker Master Figaro

Master Figaro 

Hair-Artistes are usually Italians, Spaniards or Frenchmen and when a barber here in Germany is particularly good, then we call him a Figaro. It is the name we usually reserve for a witty and loquacious barber who is always at the customers’ good service and who always seems to know more than what’s in the newspapers. (He is precisely the fellow that George Burns, the grandfather of American comedy was referring to when he said: Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are too busy cutting hair) This is still the way it is today in villages and in small towns here in Germany. 

Figaro got his name from the famous comedic opera The Barber of Seville. composed by Rossini in 1816 and of course from The Marriage of Figaro, composed by Mozart in 1786. These are humorous and spirited musical works just bursting with vitality. Now doesn’t our little Figaro look sharp and spiffy with his droll cap and his artfully designed comb and mirror?!
