The Nutcracker is a figure of German origin that evolved from a practical tool to an iconic Christmas symbol. Inspired by the rich tradition of German craftsmen who carved these charming wooden figures around the 15th century, PlayingCardsDecks.com brings us a new direct release that captures the festive essence of this iconic object, blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary artistic expression: BICYCLE NUTCRACKER.
The magical connection between the nutcracker, Christmas, and literature intertwines throughout history. From Hoffmann’s enchanting tale, where a girl dives into a dream world after receiving a nutcracker on the Christmas tree, to Tchaikovsky’s emotionally charged musical adaptation that merges literary magic, this deck illustrated by Juniardi Satyanagara celebrates the unique union of these influences, bringing the magic of the Christmas season to each card.
With complete customization, the designs feature characters from the inspiring works on every card, from the courts to the aces and jokers. The deck maintains its playability while captivating with entirely original illustrations.
Available in two festive editions in red and green, both share designs, changing the color on the backs and cases.
The deck includes two jokers and two special cards.
Printed by the USPCC with a cushioned finish in a limited run of 2500 units, a limited quantity is available for sale, while the rest has been sent to Pip Box Club members and other distributors.
