Jim Shore has partnered with FAO Swartz to create a gift collection combining the nostalgia and tradition of FAO with Jim's detailed art motifs. With rosy cheeks and marvelous mustache, this nutcracker ornament stands guard to keep your season sweet. Boasting a baroque uniform and jeweled cap, his toothy smile completes his elegant stance and ready lance. The FAO Schwarz Nutcracker by Jim Shore Holiday Ornament is made of resin. Measures about 4 1/2-inches tall x 2-inches wide x 1 2/3-inches long.
Jim Shore is a treasured artist and something of a legend, inspiring his friends and expansive base of followers with work reminiscent of family, tradition, spirituality, and love of country. Shore's signature look of handmade, hand-carved art evokes appreciation and nostalgia, while embracing inspired themes of folklore and tradition found within American and European folk art. As a quilting aficionado, he often combines traditional quilt patterns with one of his favorite types of folk art, rosemaling, into his designs. Jim Shore's creations make much-appreciated gifts for almost anyone!
