This is a wonderful 1930s German bisque gnome from "Rubezahl" fairy tale figurine that was given out as part of the Winter Hilfswerk charity. The Winter Hilfswerk (WHW) was a charitable organization started in the 1930s in Germany in order to give people work as well as to raise money for poor people. The trinkets were sold at Saturday markets to raise money for the charity. The Gnome is just darling and a perfect doll size! He is holding his big club over his shoulder and sports a long beard. The figurine measures 1.5 inches tall. Excellent painting and very good condition. The hole in the back of the figurine is original from the factory and done on purpose on all the WHW figurines. I have other WHW figures for sale in my other listings.
Non-smoking home. I will combine shipping with other items in my shop.
*** Please note: The combined shipping does not always add up properly and sometimes can add up to be very high. I will always correct this on the invoice before the buyer pays. Please let me know if the combined shipping comes out too high and I will adjust. Therefore, it would be better to go through the checkout process with multiple items and let me adjust the shipping before you pay. Otherwise, the buyer must understand that Paypal will no longer refund fees, therefore, any shipping refunds for shipping over payments will be refunded minus Paypal fees.
