2018 Silver Nutcracker Plate
Here at Wendell August Forge, the holiday season of 2018 is the season of The Nutcracker! Just as in the original children’s story and eventual ballet, on this plate we can see Clara entranced by the nutcracker prince that she has recently been gifted. Little does she know of the magic and adventure that will soon ensue! Her new toy soon comes to life and carries her on an incredible adventure of dances with the sugar plum fairy and a battle with the mouse king, all leading her to a throne as the queen of the land of sweets beside her beloved nutcracker. This nutcracker plate captures a tender moment from the story, and makes a perfect gift plate to remind any loved one of the magic of holiday imagination. Designed by artist Kip Richmond, the piece is signed by master die engraver, Len Youngo. Among the greatest in the world, his paint brush is a chisel and his canvas is metal. For more than 30 years he has perfected his craft using centuries old techniques. Made in the USA by hand, own a piece of history today.
