Gunther Ulbricht Nutcracker Signing
Friday Nov 15th 2013
2:00pm to 7:00pm

For the Seventeenth consecutive year, The Frame Workshop will be honored to host a visit by a family member of the respected German nutcracker maker, Holzkunst Christian Ulbricht.

We welcome Gunther Ulbricht, on his ninth visit during our annual Christmas Open House. We are fortunate as The Frame Workshop is only one of a handful of stops across the United States part of the 2013 Ulbricht U.S. tour.

The 2013 Toymaker nutcraker pictured to the right showcases the attention to detail that is found in every item produced in the Ulbricht workshops...

Toymaker - 2013 Limited Edition nutcracker by Ulbricht
Gunther Ulbricht

Gunther, who with his sister, Ines, represents the third generation of this well known firm based in Bavaria and the Erzgebirge.

Gunther has inherited great creative ability. Many of the most artistic of the nutcrackers produced today bear his designs. In his private time he is a fine artist, painting both portraits and landscapes.

The tradition of an annual "tour bird" continues in 2013 with a Corbie the Raven - This special cracking bird, pictured to the right is a limited edition nutcracker and measures 5-3/8 inches. This Corbie is available only through select retail dealers in the United States that host an artist visit and signing event during this year.
