DORIMU CONKER GNOME in MATCHBOX - 01
“Under the chestnut tree,
Where no-one’s been,
The spiky shells lie on the ground.
Beneath their armour green,
There hides unseen,
A conker, smooth and shiny brown.”
Nothing reminds me of childhood autumns like conkers! We used to go to the park to collect them and my granny would make a kind of string and put it in the wardrobe to keep spiders and moths away. We created conker figurines and colourful conker spider webs!
Conkers are little treasures that bring joys of Autumn and symbolize new beginnings, uniqueness, growth and longevity. It is believed that a necklace made of conkers brings good luck to the wearer and that horse chestnut tree is a good sign that you are going to experience a great life and will live long and happily!
The tiny bean-shaped OOAK magical folk is made from European hornbeam. Tiny details give them a special charm and an extra pinch of magic! They come in themed handmade match boxes designed by Nataša Majer which make a lovely background and a wonderful addition to the tiny figurines.
Here’s a secret: open your heart and you will hear them whispering and giggling while keeping you company! Let them into your heart and they will brighten up your everyday.
The Dorimu Gnomes are about 3 cm (1.2”). They are hand-painted and sealed with varnish, but they still feel like wood (not like plastic). Each Dorimu Gnome is unique. Please consider that Dorimu products are handmade and delicate. They are not toys and need to be handled with care.
