Antique German Snow Bearded Gnome On A Swing Pic 14.9 For Sale
I only know of three different pieces that hang and swing from an arch like this one. In addition to this gnome, there is a Santa and a little snow baby. All are pictured in my book. All are rare. Of those existing, some have arches that have broken along the top and have been glued. I have seen Hertwig catalog pictures of these pieces both with and without a stem of green leaves and red berries wrapped around one side of the arch. There is no way to know if this example ever had greenery. It is 3" high.The bisque is rather dirty, and if the new owner wants to change the string, the little gnome could be removed and the arch cleaned. The string is not original, although it seems to have been green string or thread that was used originally. This piece has doubled string and it is not long enough for the gnome to sit on it. As you can see in the back picture, it wraps around his back. This is an easy fix. Additionally his "0" mouth is imperfectly painted, but if your eyes are as bad as mine, you will need a magnifying glass to tell. There are no breaks or repairs to the arch or the gnome. Lovely!
