Each one of Tom Clark's gnomes have a unique story, sign and coin to accompany the piece.
Some are still produced and some have been retired.
This is one one of my favorite collections, because they always make me smile. I have about 80 in all.
"Johann" sign is Sagittarius. He was produced in 1984. He is signed by Tom Clark, his piece number is 74. He is retired and his item number is #1075.
His story reads-
"(Sagittarius, 1984) Every musical group needs a good back-up man like Johann, who plays the big bass. As steady as the pounding waves, he plays the deep boats, but always in the key of sea. He made up a ballad entitled, "Oh Shen, Did You See A Bald Tick ?", but none of the other guys will play it with him. His coin is German".
