This nutcracker is the perfect representation of Steinbach's new quality and design. Steinbach's new owner, Rico Paul, has truly committed himself to restoring Steinbach's reputation as a quality nutcracker maker. This nutcracker represents better wood carving, painting and costume design which a Steinbach in the past used to represent. There was a definite decline in the quality of the Steinbach nutcrackers when the daughters owned the company. I think Steinbach's future is in very good hands with Mr. Paul.
I have been dealing with Black Forest Gifts for over 17 years and the service has been excellent. Shipping was extremely quick which is surprising when you are dealing with hand crafted items from Germany. As a customer you should always be patient and aware that not all items will be available and at the last moment there could be delays due to demand in Germany and the inconsistent shipping of items from Germany to the United States. The German postal system is very inconsistent on shipping times and UPS from Germany can be delayed by customs in the United States. I buy from vendors in the United States and in Germany and Black Forest Gifts is one of the bests vendors in the United States.
