OSM Hand Cast Brass Nutcracker


A Christmas special limited edition, these beautifully handmade cast brass nutcrackers have been handmade from scratch by Molly Knowles and Oliver Sparks at the OSM workshop in rural Leicestershire using traditional materials and methods.

Recycled Victorian brass is poured into sand moulds, carefully prepared by Molly using patterns cast from an original handmade master crafted by Ollie. The female thread in the body is tapped by Molly and the threads on the T-bar turned by Ollie. 

The fettled and finished castings are given a traditional baked linseed oil finish, patinated with a blowtorch and baked for three days in a furnace. The final touch is a thin layer of Alfie Shine to nourish and protect the finish.

A truly delightful object, made with love and care by a wonderful and incredibly talented couple.
