Christian Ulbright

The Ulbricht family roots can be traced back to the 17th century. Long before the first Christian Ulbricht nutcrackers were designed. The Ulbricht family lived in the German Erzgebirge until the end of World War II. The German Erzgebirge ("Ore Mountains") is a mountain range in eastern Germany. In the 15th century rich deposits of gold, silver and tin were discovered and started a large settlement. The mining industry helped the region become very wealthy. Many beautiful castles and wonderful churches were built and can still be visited nowadays. As a hobby the miners enjoyed working with wood and developed magnificent skills in wood turning and wood carving. In the 18th century the unthinkable happened. The mines dried up, and the miners turned to their long-time hobby of woodturning for their livelihood.
