Steinbach Three Musketeer Nutcracker Series

All for one and one for all! Alexandre Dumas wrote the tales and adventures of the 3 Musketeers. The novels and plays that he wrote are filled with action and clever wording. Although some of his work is not historically accurate Dumas had a knack for bringing his characters to life with the charm and vitality that made his writing so popular.

Historically The 3 Musketeers were the French King’s elite guards and were known for their charming courtly behavior in rescuing damsels in distress. Each of these nutcrackers has plumed hats that add an elegant touch to their costumes. They have mighty swords for they all where highly skilled at fencing and other fighting techniques.

  Aramis (ES722), the first nutcracker in Steinbach's Three Musketeer Nutcracker Series, was introduced in 1996. He sold out in 1998.
