Description

A favorite character of ballet lovers and nutcracker collectors, this drummer stands ready in full regalia. Faceted crystals evoke more rarified gemstones like red siam, blue sapphire, jet, and diamonds, embedded in enameled gold-tone metal. A pair of ballet shoes worn by American Ballet Theater principal ballerina Stella Abrera in a performance of the beloved holiday ballet "The Nutcracker," in which a figure much like this one comes to life, are now in our National Museum of American History.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
