**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 gold or silver. 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. 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. Traditions are a wonderful thing. Wendell August Forge's Annual Ornament is a simple yet poignant gift that will make a mark on your children, grandchildren, family and friends. A tradition is passing down a piece of you, and for a lifetime they will hang their ornaments and be filled with the memories of this Christmas tradition. In this world that moves faster everyday, these traditions bring us back to what matters the most. #makeyourmark by starting your tradition today. Annual Ornaments are handstamped with 2018 on the back of each ornament.
