We are very proud being able to offer:
An intriguing one-of-a-kind Austrian bronze from the famous gnome family
with a thermometer in working condition.
Our little man checks the temperature and at the same time holds a large rock crystal. The scene takes place on a 'wooden' floor.
Domestic shipping is
free for all our Vienna Bronzes, regardless of size, weight and value. And
it is also free for our friends outside the U.S. if we can combine three and
more. This refers to all countries worldwide. No exceptions.
There are many stories
about the gnomes, not just being miners, but also possessing certain powers
that human beings do not have. This larger scale old figurine is a fabulous example.
A gnome is a diminutive spirit
in Renaissance magic and alchemy,
first introduced by Paracelsus in
the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of
modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit
the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small,
humanoid creature that lives underground.
The quality and the
condition are truly extraordinary. Please see the link below. Don’t forget to
enlarge the thumbnails.
