Take a look at this guy! He’s about 3 feet tall and is made of a combination of wood, steel & tin. He’s pretty weathered – although in excellent shape – so he had been hanging out on someone’s lawn or garden for a while. I picked him up at an estate sale along the coast of Maine.
According to Wiki (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_gnome), a garden or lawn gnome “is a figurine of a small humanoid creature, usually wearing a pointy hat, displayed for the purpose of ornamentation on front lawns or in gardens. These figurines originated in 19th-century Germany, where they became known as Gartenzwerge (garden dwarfs). The application of the term gnome in English is first attested in the 1930s.”
My photos don’t really do him justice, and at nearly 3 feet high, he’s bigger than he looks!

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
