Cuthbert is one of the shyer Gnomes in the family.
He is sad that his beard looks a little scruffy even after brushing but he loves his mottled hat with its little black pompom around the back.
He doesn't show off (like others I could mention) and instead decided to have his hat only lightly decorated. He has a little row of deep magenta flowers at the side, with a little white pompom at the tip, and a 'Handmade with Love' button.
His body is black to show off his gorgeous hat.
All the male gnomes are basically the same size. (Don't tell them!) They all stand approx 9.25"/23.5cm tall and have a waist of 12.25"/31.5cm. BUT no two gnomes are exactly the same. Well they wouldnt be really would they, we are all different!
Their bases contain 500g of rice, so they are quite weighty and therefore I would always suggest that they are lifted by the base.
They enjoy having their beards brushed to look their best at all times. (Well you never know when a good looking lady gnome might come visiting!!)
They can be made to work as door stops (ignore their complaints about 'The Crimes Against Gnomes Act' or, like mine, are just allowed to be ornaments, being preened and living the life of luxury.
