Flint House Elves

Lillian Flint (the previous owner of the Flint House) took up photography in 1967. Most of her pictures involved small handmade elves (about 4 inches tall) which were imported from Denmark. Miss Flint also had in the back part of the house a small shop to sell various items imported from Scandinavia–many of you will remember it. She posed the elves with natural materials in a variety of charming ways. Here’s a fun winter scene. (I’m guessing many of you are wishing there was snow enough to ski right now.)

And here’s a single elf.
