The Nisse (gnome) is one of the most familiar creatures of Nordic folklore. They are typically associated with the Christmas season, and they were a big part of the Christmas decorations in my childhood. They are generally described as being short, having a long white beard, and wearing a conical cap in grey, red or some other bright colour.
With the romanticisation and collection of folklore during the 19th century, the Nisse gained popularity and became a subject to collect. You will always find a Nisse collection in a Danish home.
Together with my daughter Jennifer we have designed a cute range of decorative Nisser. Each Nisse is hand shaped and coloured by us from start to finish. The surface is glazed with a food-safe, non-toxic glaze, leaving some areas raw. Inspired by many childhood Christmas’s in Denmark.
All Nisse-Gnomes are individual and unique. They measure between 10-12cm
This listing is for a set of 3 – two nisse/gnomes and one tree.
