Russian composer Tchaikovsky wrote the music for a two-part ballet based on the fairytale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written in 1816 by author E. T. A. Hoffmann, in which young Marie Stahlbaum's favourite Christmas toy; the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls. Before the first performance, Tchaikovsky took some songs from the ballet for a concert performance known as The Nutcracker Suite. 

Steiff's Mouse King ornament takes inspiration from this enchanting character. Made from the finest winter white alpaca; he has a delicate felt tail and paws with airbrushing details to really bring him to life! He is dressed in a resplendent midnight blue robe trimmed with white fur and accented with golden lurex. He wears a miniature golden crown on his head and has a removable wire hanger so that he can adorn your Christmas tree with his regal presence!

Limited to only 1,225 pieces (the digits of Christmas day), he comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
