2016 Annual Ornament – Rat King
As the grandfather clock begins to strike, the Rat King and his band of mice move to finish off the already wounded Nutcracker. A fierce battle ensues with dolls and toy soldiers fighting alongside the Nutcracker. Sadly they are no match for the Rat King and his army. Just when it seems all is lost, Clara throws her slipper and hits the Rat King distracting him long enough for the Nutcracker to stab him. The mice retreat and the Nutcracker is transformed into a handsome prince.
Aitkens Pewter proudly presents the Rat King, one of our series of finely crafted pewter ornaments celebrating the magic of Christmas, the tradition of the Nutcracker Ballet, and the power of the imagination.
