Nutcrackers for Collectors
Bob Mills discusses nutcrackers with the BBC Antiques Roadshow's Bunny Campione.
My Book 17th Century French Nutcracker
This site exists to share information on nutcrackers as antiques and
collectables and to provide some sort of basic reference point; if
you have an unusual or unique nutcracker (for which you can provide
a reliable description, date and picture) please email me and I will
add it to the site.
I concentrate on older (earlier than 1950) nutcrackers and only on those that can be considered practical - this means that purely decorative models such as German Soldier types are excluded. You will find more figural than non-figural examples here and the basic premise is 'the older and more unique the better'.
I would appreciate and will reply to any constructive comments you have on the content or structure of this site.
