Nutcrackers > Ulbricht > Tour Birds
 
Since 1997 these delightful bird nutcrackers have been issued in limited quantities during Ulbricht's U.S. signing tour. A handful of shops are selected each year to host a signing event with Gunther Ulbricht. 2016 will mark the twentieth consecutive bird design to be released in this series. But it all began with the "Woodpecker" in 1997, a replica of a 1933 nutcracker, originally made by Otto Ulbricht, Gunther's grandfather. He created the Cracking Bird to commemorate the birth of his son Christian Ulbricht that year. These delightful miniature bird nutcrackers are highly sought after and typically sell out during the signing events, perhaps because they are not as seasonal and look great sitting on display throughout the year. Below you'll find that we have a few of the older Tour Birds from previous years that are still available. The 2016 Bird is scheduled to be a Hen laying Eggs!
You will find our Ulbricht nutcrackers organized within these ten groups...
