Alsace Nutcracker

Alsace Nutcracker

Here’s a great boxwood antique nutcracker from the Alsace region of France.

 

I keep a secret stash of boxwood on hand specifically for these great older boxwood nutcracker restorations.

 

This one came into the shop missing a nose.

 

 

 

 

Here’s a quick picture of it on the bench with the new boxwood in place and the reference photos I was using:

 

 

 

Finally, here it is fully restored with the new nose carved and blended to seamlessly match the original:

 

 

 

 

I love getting the opportunity to work on these great old boxwood pieces.
