Christmas Elf Figures and Decorations

For centuries, Northern Europeans believed their homes were protected by mischievous gnomes. When the Santa Claus tradition made it to Scandinavia in the 1800's, writers quickly adapted the gnomes into Santa's friends and helpers. Elf figurines in porcelain, glass, plastic and rubber are now common sights in antique shops; not to mention elf images on plates, ornaments, sweaters, and other media.
