One of the older members of the family, his beard and moustache are completely white. He is a very quiet gnome, enjoying the simple pleasures of his life, now that he is retired.
Loved by all the young and old alike, he always has the kettle on, ready to make a cup of green tea, and a full cookie jar, for anyone dropping in to see him.
He chose a body of turquiose which a matching hat, with what resembles, to him, little white clouds on it. To this he asked me to add just a couple of little flowers and a blue bell on the tip.
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.
