This stunning hand carved nutcracker is dressed in a skier's winter attire. His outfit features a large brown stocking style ski cap lined and accented with light brown fur. He wears a large red woolen scarf wrapped tightly around his neck to protect from the icy wind on the mountain, a dark green jacket, tan pants and light brown ski boots. This rosy cheeked and jolly skier holds his ski poles and rests his skis over his shoulder as he eagerly anticipates a thrilling day on the famous alpine mountain ski slopes. The glaze brushed over this nutcracker brings out the beautiful details in the wood grain.
