The Trimlite 'Gnomes'

Within the Swarovski Trimlite line, "The Gnome Family" theme group was released during the 1980's.  Swarovski demonstrated skill in the execution of the gnomes - delightful little figurines with round crystal bellies and goldtone faces, pointed goldtone hats, goldtone arms, hands, legs & feet.

These 6 issues were:

  • Trimlite Gnome Brother Playing Horn
  • Gnome Dancing Daughter
  • Gnome Laughing Brother
  • Gnome Laughing Sister
  • Gnome Mama
  • Gnome Papa

Gnome Papa and Mama are the tallest figurines, measuring 3.5" tall.  All the Trimlite Gnome children: Dancing Daughter, Laughing Sister, Brother Playing Horn, and Laughing Brother are smaller, measuring 2.5" high.

All the gnome children were issued BEFORE the gnome parents.  The children were introduced in 1983 at a retail price of $25 each.  They retired in 1988. 
The gnome parents were issued in 1985 at a retail price of $50 each and also retired in 1988.
Today, any one of these charming little gnomes can cost you up to $300 each on the secondary market.

  1. Here in the U.K. gnomes have taken over some peoples gardens. Now I suppose they will be taken over the Swarovski display cabinets as well.

  2. I quite like the sound of Trimlite items but not gnomes, I think.

  3. I have the Gnomes... they are Trimlite, I had to add them to my collection :) But I must admit, they are probably my least favorite of the Trimlite pieces. Now the Sports Champions and the Children, they are another story! Still looking for some of the kids...
