At the turn-of-the-century, fruit and nuts were a popular choice for desserts. A bowl of nuts, along with decorative wooden or ornate metal nutcrackers, were often placed on dining tables to serve as a fun and entertaining center of conversation while guests awaited their final course. 

The tradition deepened throughout the 19th century, eventually leading to a rise in intricately designed wooden nutcrackers - including the famous soldier nutcracker figures that were typically carved in Germany. In France, the nutcracker tradition had its own variations with many decorative crackers being carved in the Dordogne region of southwest France near the Pyrenees.

Now largely a thing of the past with pre-shelled nuts available at every grocery store, nutcrackers still make an appearance every holiday season as a nostalgic celebration of Old-World traditions. 

Found at market outside of Paris, these Vintage Hand-Carved French Nutcrackers are sure to delight with their intricately carved regional folk designs and clever construction. Hand-carved and full of charm, we're certain it will add a touch of hand-crafted French charm to your home at the holidays. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition, but recommended for decorative use only. Measurements: A is 7.75" in length; B is 7.25" and C is 8.25".
