Old Schafer & Vater Police Gnome Match Holder
This colorful whimsy is a vintage porcelain piece made by the Schafer and Vater company of Germany in the early 1900's. The "gnome" looks like an English bobby. The front is marked Police Gnome and his face has a great deal of character with blushed cheeks and his eyes cast to the side. His right hand holds a notepad and pencil and his left hand which is over sized is held behind his back. He stands next to a stump which is open and was probably used to hold matches. On the bottom is the S & V crown mark.
It is in very nice condition with no damage and minimal wear.
