Brandon has redesigned his Skull Nutcracker.   When he first discovered figural nutcrackers on the internet and in books he set out and made his first designs without seeing an example in person.   After we acquired a few vintage nutcrackers and after seeing other peoples collections,  Brandon decided to recreate the Skull Nutcracker to be more delicate and more in scale with the vintage figural nutcrackers.   The new version is approximately 7 inches tall .  The old version was quite a bit larger at 8 inches tall.

Here is a picture of the old version and the new version for comparison.

Brandon also created the coffin shaped stand for this nutcracker.  The Skull Nutcracker is the first of the new design and is signed and numbered #1.  It is currently listed on Ebay.   This would make a nice Halloween addition to any collection!

Brandon has completed a Skull Nutcracker and I will be listing it on Ebay today.  It is numbered 003 and has some differences from the first two he created.  This one has a wood pin and he added a recess to hold a nut.
