Title: Nutcracker Decorations Jigsaw Puzzle
About: Another fun Christmas themed jigsaw puzzle is here. Today we're featuring some very beautiful Nutcracker decorations. A nutcracker is a mechanical device for cracking nuts. Nutcrackers in the form of wooden carvings of a soldier, knight, king, or other people have existed since at least the 15th century. These nutcrackers portray a person with a large mouth which the operator opens by lifting a lever in the back of the figurine. Originally one could insert a nut in the big-toothed mouth, press down and thereby crack the nut. Modern nutcrackers in this style serve mostly for decoration, mainly at Christmas time.
