Vintage WOODEN WOMAN NUTCRACKER 13-In Native in Skirt! - eBay (item 310063516531 end time Jul-05-08 19:50:48 PDT)
This vintage nutcracker is a naked woman made of wood. Her left leg opens to the side and there are hollows to accept nuts for cracking when her legs are closed.
I see no maker's mark anywhere. She's a good size at 13 1/2 inches and seems strong. She could be a South Seas native girl dressed in just a little skirt.
