Garden Gnome ‘Artur’
One of the Good Spirits. Phillipp Griebel’s Garden Gnome.
A genuine garden gnome – also known as Nanus Hortorum Vulgaris – is always shaped from clay, then fired: never, ever made from a cheap plastic mould! It’s home is in Thuringia, to be precise the small town of Gräfenroda, in the old days the centre of garden gnome production in Germany. There were originally 14 firms that in the good old days specialised in the manufacture of these world-famous figures, of which one has survived – Philipp Griebel, founded in 1874.
The ‘Griebel’ gnomes are made of hollowed clay shaped in plaster moulds: their characteristically cheerful colours are individually hand-painted.
