You may have noticed that my little shop is well populated with Gnomes (and dwarves)! These creatures take many forms and German folklore is replete with stories of them.

This Woodland Gnome wears a floppy hat and carries a wicker basket of tiny pine cones.

Smoker Figures or Räuchermännchen are traditional folk art pieces designed in the mid-1800's by the toy makers of the Erzgebirge region in north east of Germany. Artisans continue to handcraft these wooden wonders in small workshops using both traditional methods and modern technology. Creators often look to the forests around them in the Ore Mountains for inspiration.

Scented cones sold separately.
