KING BLACK GOLD Nutcracker by Christian Ulbricht Christian Ulbricht.
Large deposits of silver not only gave the mountain range its name, but also supplied generations of mountain folk with their daily bread. All Ulbricht ancestors were miners - but when the ore supplies started to dwindle those living and working there had to come up with new sources of income. And so the one-time miners first turned their hand to carving and wood turning and then to running businesses. In 1928 the time had finally come - Christian Ulbricht's father founded the companyImage "Otto Ulbricht-Werkstätten für feine Holzarbeiten und Spielwaren" (which translated would be the "Otto Ulbricht workshops for fine woodcraft and toys") in Seiffen. He used his entrepreneurial skill to blend innovative and traditional elements into something unique and the reward for this was a gold medal at the 1936 Great Exhibition in Paris for his designs of nursery clocks and a group of travelling singers (Kurrende choir). The Second World War and the ensuing dispossession by the communist powers-that-be in East Germany brought an end to the Seiffen-based company. Otto Ulbricht had to flee to the west with his family. He soon set up the company again in Lauingen at the Danube which has been run by his son Christian Ulbricht since 1968. After the reunification of Germany, Christian Ulbricht was able to buy back his father's company in Seiffen, so that wood could be crafted attention to detail in his old and his new home.
