I miss Jim D'Onofrio. It was always such a pleasure and, usually surprising, to see new weights that he created. He certainly was a credit to his homeland, Scotland, and he made a significant contribution to the art of paperweight creations. He had his own style and was not afraid to be fanciful (as this weight demonstrates!) I really love these gnomes. they have great expressions and honestly, who expects to see a Bouquet of Gnomes???
This whimsical design features the faces of four bald gnomes, two with white skin and two with beige skin, surrounded by four spaced clusters of light pink flowers and green leaves on clear ground.
Diameter: 3 3/8".
