Steinbach Nutcrackers and Smokers

Steinbach is recognized worldwide for their intricately designed hand-carved wooden nutcrackers. They are also well known for their incense burning smokers. The family-owned German company was founded over two centuries ago and was bought to worldwide prominence in the 20th century by Herr Christian Steinbach who ran the company from 1947 until his death in 2007. After his death the job of running the company was taken over by Christian's daughter, Karla Steinbach, who also acts as their chief designer.

Nutcrackers hold a special place in German folklore, with numerous tales of their providing protection from evil spirits as well as bringing good luck to families and their homes. Take some time to browse the wonderful selection of these very unique and beautiful German nutcrackers and smokers that are sure to bring good luck to your home.

Some Steinbach nutcrackers are created as limited editions, adding greatly to their collectibility and value over time. Additionally Christian Steinbach was fond of holding signing events where he would autograph a limited number of nutcrackers. His daughter Karla continues this family tradition today. Signed Steinbach nutcrackers can sometimes command premium prices on the secondary market, especially vintage nutcrackers signed by Herr Christian Steinbach himself.
