there is a wooden leaver on the back which opens the mouth, this is where the nuts are cracked. They are quite scary in a way but i've quite got to like them after visiting the german christmas market in manchester last year.
Howard was not impressed at having to carry them around preston though,lol

Re: my giant german nut crackers


They are really nice are you keeping them and giving them names or selling them.

Karen, I'm keeping them but poor chaps have no names. I guess one could be called nuts and the other crackers,lol
I'm going to take them to the Christmas doll fair just to decorate my stall

They're quite creepy aren't they? Not sure I'd like to share my home with those two; I think you're quite brave Shelley! Remember in the story of the Nutrcracker when the models come to life? *shudders*
