Antique Black Forest Gnome Match Stand, Hand Carved c. 1880
The gnomes always are rare and popular, and we try hard to find nice ones. This grumpy little guy has great character, don't you agree? He's a pipe smoker, and the post beside him is made to hold a box of matches open and at the ready as we've shown in our photos (book for matches is a prop, not included, sorry). He stands 5.75" tall on his carved plinth. Other measurements noted on the photos.
Very good condition for age and type, there is just one flaw and that is that his pipe has suffered a chip to the bowl (visible in our photos). The measurements are noted on photos. RARE gnome, cute as can be.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
