**Limited Edition 1 of 95**: Our story began 95 years ago. To celebrate, we're handcrafting ONLY 95 of our 2018 Annual Ornament, the Nutcracker, plated in silver and 24kt gold. While supplies last. At Wendell August Forge, each piece is a celebration of the artistry and history of our craft. We are still here today because of our dedicated craftsmen, our incredible community, and most of all... you. Thank you for a marvelous 95 years. In 2018, we celebrate! 2018 is the year of the Nutcracker at Wendell August Forge. Inspired by the 19th century children's story and ballet, young Clara is gifted a Nutcracker Prince and magic quickly ensues. Soon the Nutcracker comes to life and Clara is taken on a journey that leads to a battle with the Mouse King and a dance with the Sugar Plum Fairy. In the end, she becomes his queen in the Land of Sweets. The Nutcracker reminds us that a child's imagination on Christmas is a beautiful and magical place. May we all, no matter our age, still experience a little bit of that magic each and every Christmas. By artist Kip Richmond and Master Die Engraver Len Youngo, the piece is marked on the back with our new 95th Anniversary hand-stamp, along with the mark of craftsman who made the piece. The Nutcracker also includes the engraver's signature mark hidden in the design. Each is a piece of art, made by hand in our Pennsylvania workshop.
Annual Ornaments are handstamped with 2018 on the back of each ornament.
