Product Description

This extremely rare figures was carved by the father of all trolls Thomas Dam. The underside of the base was covered in brown felt which was silverfish eaten and rotten so I removed it to find the hand carved signature DAM.

Thomas Dam worked in the little fishing town of Gjol, Denmark, as a baker but his business went broke and to make ends meet he started to carve figures depicting local people. He usually used limewood and this particular timber was resistant to woodworm. The pieces were so popular he began making similar figures from rubber stuffed with wood shavings. These sold well to the tourist market and he was soon able to by a small factory and began producing vinyl trolls and the rest is history.

This particular one is quite large and features a fisherman's wife in good detail. There are a few scuffs to her dress but apart from this she has no damage and presents beautifully.

She stands 190m tall.
