ANTIQUE FIGURAL NUTCRACKER WOOD CARVING HUMAN FOX c. 1880

This auction is for an outstanding, rare, very decorative and highly collectible figural antique nutcracker in shape of a humanized fox as hunter in traditional hunting costume with hat and gun and dead pheasant bird as kill in his right hand. The backside shows the opening to insert the nuts which can be opened while turning the lower part of the figurine. Indeed a rarity to find and of course an exquisite addition for any fine collection.
