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. 2022 will mark the twenty-fourth consecutive bird design to be released in this series having missed the past two years due to the Worldwide Covid Pandemic. Both U.S. Tours were cancelled in 2020-2021 Despite his absence, Gunther Ulbricht has already released images of a "Cracking Bird" for 2022 - See the Barn Owl below... This all began with the "Woodpecker" in 1997, an actual replica of a 1933 nutcracker, originally made by Otto Ulbricht, Gunther's grandfather.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 2022 Bird is a Barn Owl, while the 2019 Bird was a Belted Kingfisher.
You will find our Ulbricht nutcrackers organized within these twelve groups...
