This Christmas pipe continues the 12-year theme 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King', which began in 2011 and will end in 2022. It is based on the characters of the children's book 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King' by German author Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann and the famous ballet 'The Nutcracker' by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
This being the 4th pipe in the series, it depicts Fritz Stahlbaum, the naughty brother who always plays tricks on his sister Maria.
The pipe is a beautiful group 5 Diplomat (5128) in Cumberland finish with smooth rim. It features a Sterling Silver band intricately engraved with scrollwork and the name Fritz.
The impressive pipe tamper is 64mm long and crafted from solid Sterling Silver. It depicts in great detail Fritz, who is hiding the Nutcracker behind his back.
The highly collectable White Spot Christmas pipes and tampers are presented in a leather-bound book held in attractive blue & red colours with gold embossing to represent the uniform of the Nutcracker. Each set is accompanied by its numbered limited edition certificate.
