The Steinbach Family has been creating handmade Nutcrackers for two centuries. Coca-Cola¨ Collector, introduced in 1998, was the first licensed nutcracker produced by the Steinbach Factory in conjunction with Coca-Cola. This Nutcracker stands 13 inches tall and is on a 4 ¾ inch (diameter) base. T is no damage other than a couple of scratches on the bottom of the base (see picture). T does appear to be a tiny spot on the edge of the white heart, on the little flag, w the paint is askew. This came from a friend of mine who closed her retail gift store last year. I have the original box that the Nutcracker came in. I have seen these sell anyhwere from $225.00 - $299.00

Please read the following before you place a bid. I know itâe(tm)s a little long, but I would really appreciate it. It will not only help you understand how I handle transactions, but weâe(tm)ll both have peace-of-mind in the end.

Thank you,


PAYMENT: I accept Pay Pal, Money Orders, Cashier Checks and Personal/Business Checks. You must notify me by e-mail within 3 days after the auction ends telling me how you will be paying for your item. If using Pay Pal then payment must be received within 5 days of auction ending. If you have a problem, such as going on vacation or some other reasonable excuse, then let me know and I will do my best to work things out with you. If I do not hear from you or you donâe(tm)t pay in the above-allotted time frame, I will then re-list the item and Ebay will be contacted with a âe~non-paymentâe(tm) report.

SHIPPING: I use ½ inch thick bubble wrap and peanuts whenever possible. I also use new boxes and pack each and every item with great care as if I were sending it to myself on the other side of the country. On some items not only will I wrap bubble wrap around an item once but 3 times and I have, on occasion, double boxed fragile items. I DO NOT charge extra for my supplies or packing. In other words t are no handling fees when you buy from me. I recommend getting insurance for any fragile item. It doesnâe(tm)t cost that much and just in case an elephant has fallen on my box, youâe(tm)ll at least be coveredâe¦and we will both have peace of mind. I ship everything by USPS Priority Mail unless otherwise noted. I usually ship within 48-72 hours when Pay Pal is used to pay for an item, or when I receive a Money Order or Cashier Check. Please be aware that if a personal/business check is sent I will wait until the check clears with the bank before mailing your item. I also refund excess shipping charges. In other words, if USPS charges me $7.00 and you paid $7.75 I refund the extra $.75 I am not like some sellers who think they can make money on shipping. I never have and I never will.

COMBINING ITEMS: On rare occasions I will combine items purchased from one buyer, but items have to be able to be packed safely in a box. Jewelry can always be combined and usually at no extra cost to you. Buying several earrings, bracelets, rings, etc. can usually be put in the same small box without adding additional weight so in most cases you donâe(tm)t pay anything after the first item you purchase. Again, weâe(tm)re talking about jewelry and other smaller items When getting multiple items from me please wait until I get back to you before paying me. The reason I donâe(tm)t normally combine larger items for shipping is because of the type of packing materials (namely ½ inch thick bubble wrap and peanuts) that I use to ensure your item gets to you in one piece. Packing materials can fill a box quite easily and I donâe(tm)t like cramming breakable items in a box. Would you rather have a box filled with broken items because you wanted to save a dollar or two in the shipping cost or would you like to receive your purchased item in one piece? Maybe it cost you a couple of dollars more, but it will give you peace of mind and me too. As stated aboveâe¦I DO NOT charge extra handling fees or for packing materials.

REFUNDS: I will o...
