HERR DROSSELMEYER: Herr Drosselmeyer S633 was the FIRST ISSUE in the NUTCRACKER SUITE SERIES and it is one of the most sought after pieces ever made by Steinbach. The bottom has the Steinbach factory stamp and the exclusive distributor stamp of Adrian Taron and Sons located in Carpinteria, California. It also comes with the ORIGINAL TAG and comes in the ORIGINAL BOX with the Steinbach Tag on the end. I would rate the Overall Condition as Very Good to Excellent. But please look over the pictures carefully and judge for yourself. He is number 2330 out of 6000 and SIGNED BY CHRISTIAN STEINBACH. THE MOUSE KING: This piece has been preserved in great condition in its original box and is number 44 from a limited edition of 10,000. This is a retired piece introduced in 1993. It is the 2nd piece in the Nutcracker Suite Series. The bottom has the Steinbach factory stamp. This nutcracker is a rare find because only a few out of the 10,000 had the true spelling"Tschaikowskij's" Mouse King. Many consider this as a misspelled collectible but actually it is the true German spelling of the word. It measures 18 inches tall. This piece is missing one whisker. It is my favorite nutcracker in our collection. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me. THE PRINCE: The Nutcracker Prince was the THIRD ISSUE in the NUTCRACKER SUITE SERIES, introduced in 1994. The bottom has the Steinbach factory stamp. It also comes with the ORIGINAL TAG and comes in the ORIGINAL BOX with the Steinbach Tag on the end. I would rate the Overall Condition as Very Good to Excellent. But please look over the pictures carefully and judge for yourself. He is number 422 out of 10,000.
