Peter Holmes - Noddy & Big Ears Paperweights
« on: September 26, 2015, 12:11:03 PM »
Hi All
I recently acquired this unusual paperweight of a Gnome made by Peter Holmes. I have known Peter for many years but never seen him make a paperweight with a figure in before so I thought I would post this for all to see, as to me, this is something a little different from him. It is 3" in diameter and has the Scottish Borders Art Glass label and a PH cane in the base

That's no ordinary gnome - pretty sure that's Noddy's pal, Big Ears.

I think you could be right Alastair - Any suggestions as to who might have modelled for it ?

I emailed Peter Holmes and he replied saying that someone had commissioned two copies of a weight showing Noddy and two copies of another weight showing Big Ears weight so it seems someone has sold one copy of just the Big Ears when you might think they might have kept two together as a pair but there you go - mystery solved !
