The tomte ("tomtar", plural) is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore typically associated with the winter solstice. The creature is generally described as a being no taller than 35 inches and has an appearance similar to that of a garden gnome with a tall conical hat. It is known to have immense strength and is considered the protector of the farm and livestock. 

This tomte is especially festive with the holly decoration.  Perfect for adding a festive touch to your holiday table(s), and also makes a great giftable item!

Our coasters and magnets made of tumbled Botticino Italian marble are some of our most popular items in the Museum Store.  Nature provides small nicks, dings and fissures which add to the unique beauty of the product.
