Description
"Dating back to the 17th century, Europeans began incorporating "gobbi" (Italian for "dwarf" or "hunchback") into their garden statuary. By the 1800s, Germans began referring to these small men with round bellies, pointed hats, and white beards as "Gartenzwerge," or garden dwarfs.

A country known for its rich folklore, Germany had long passed down stories about gnomes, dwarves, trolls, fairies, and other fantastical forest folk. According to these stories, garden dwarves were cheerful, slightly mischievous creatures who provided late-night assistance and protection to gardens and property.

When Sir Charles Isham found an assortment of terra cotta garden gnomes in Nuremberg, Germany in 1847, he was mesmerized. He brought 21 of the diminutive statues back to England with him to decorate his 90-foot rockery, beginning a sensation for bearded garden gnome statuary all across the United Kingdom that endures today.

Continuing this tradition, these spritely garden assistants will lend a touch of colourful, whimsical cheer to garden or yard. And they'll bring a smile to the faces of all who come across them.
