Here’s a really nice Squirrel Nutcracker carved in a quarter moon configuration.

 

This is a really unique rare piece from the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.

 

This piece had a large chunk missing from the mouth and a couple smaller chips around the hinge:

 

 

 

 

Here are some pictures of the piece all fixed and ready to be sent back to the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum to be put out on display:

 

 

 

 

I really like this piece and enjoyed restoring it.

Here’s a really nice ANRI Indian that was sent in for repairs by The Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.

 

The piece had some damage to the mouth.

 

It also had what appeared to be nail polish spilled on the rear lever.

 

 

 

Here are some pictures of the piece repaired and with the nail polish carefully removed:

 

 

 

 

This piece really came out great and was a lot of fun to restore.

Here’s a nice ANRI Rabbit from quite a while ago.

 

It came into the shop dried out and really dark.

 

 

 

I was able to restore the colors and finish.

 

 

The restoration work really brought this great piece back to life.

 

Happy Easter!!!!

Here’s another really great screw type Nutcracker.

 

This one came in with damage to the face and missing both arms.

 

 

Lots of research and work went into restoring this piece.

 

 

 

 

 

This is a great piece and the customer was very happy with how well it came out.

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted.

 

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster.

 

Nothing bad, just life being different lately with different priorities.

 

Details on that to come at a later date.

 

Right now it’s time to get caught up.

 

Here’s a restoration I did a while ago.

 

This is a rare ANRI Articulated Bonzo Dog.

 

It needed an ear fixed and the articulation restored.

 

 

 

Lots of work went into this small piece.

 

Here are some pictures with the ear fixed and the articulation working like it should.

 

 

 

 

 

This was a fun piece to work on and it came out great!

 

The owner was thrilled with the restoration and happy to be able to proudly put the piece on display now.
