Time for “Summer” harvest!  Our little gnome is made entirely of felt and is ball and socket jointed at neck and shoulders. He is dressed in a bright poplin tunic with leather belt secured by a tiny custom cast brass buckle. In addition he has felt garden clogs and a jaunty felt hat. With his handcrafted wooden rake and hand woven split ash basket, he and his mouse friend are ready to gather grain. The hand made accessories are all created at the RJW facility in Bennington, VT.

Measuring 3” the field mouse companion is of wool felt jointed at the neck and shoulders.  The face is molded and has  hand painted crystal eyes. Tiny resin hands & feet and leather tail add to the realistic effect.
