About the Author

Bob Mills started collecting nutcrackers after his wife bought what she thought was a garlic press at an antiques fair. It turned out to be a Victorian reversible nutcracker and this, together with his interest in treen objects, initiated a collection that has developed over many years. Bob is a member of Nutcracker Collectors Club and is a custodian of a website used by collectors worldwide to share new finds and information. He lives in Oxfordshire and works as a Contracts Manager for a software company.
