Wondering if there is symbolism with the pea pods? Cute little guy.

Perhaps that is Santa delivering pods instead of coal? I looked in a directory of marks and monograms from BSMGP under... MONK, PEA PODS, PODS, BEANS and there were no mentions of anything relevant.

Page 52 from this book (in Dutch): http://books.google.nl/books?id=xxaIB-LMpR4C&printsec=frontcover&hl=nl#v=onepage&q&f=false (a compilation of gnome fairytales).

The fairytale of the basket maker and the gnome (by Curt Englert-Faye, Swiss) in which (magic) peas play a story-role.

For the original: http://www.worldcat.org/title/vo-chlyne-lute-zwergensagen-feen-und-fanggengeschichten-aus-der-schweiz/oclc/611556987

The cover of the original is attached below.

You lazy glassgal; it took just a bit Googling around. In Dutch & German, I must admit ;-)

Kind regards,

I'm sorry GlassGal, I haven't got the book myself. Please look for the GoogleBook I mentioned / linked.

You might consider contacting the German illustrator, or buy the book (in Dutch; isbn: 9060386434).

Remember that the author got the original story from Curt Englert-Faye.

You're most welcome!

Btw, there is another German fairytale on a gnome, a blacksmith and (missing) peas, by the famous Grimm-brothers.

Have a pea-k with Google Chrome (translates German into English):

Any way the wind blows.....it's up to you ;-)

Alas,  yet another painter to be remembered for this image and not their name...
