It features a gnome in the process of placing a log into a log crib which is an inkwell. The carving on this item is exceptional with great detail, lovely color and perfect patina. The figure is in excellent condition with no issues whatsoever. It measures 4 5/8” by 3” by 4 5/8” high. There is a glass insert for the ink which is a modern replacement that fits well.
