1941 Fiestaware Gnome

I was watching the season finale of the TV show "Bones" tonight (May 20th, 2010) and a murder revolved around a 1941 Fiestaware Gnome. Someone had posted on a fiestaware forum that it was purchased for $12 but worth $50,000!! The gnome was rare because of its big pointed hat that was painted with radioactive paint. I love Bones, even though it is pretty predictable.  Of course the Medical Examiner Archaeologist is in love with the police detective and every old corpse that is dug up has a big murder around it.  But, it is entertaining and there is worse on TV.

Well, it made a good story, but if there was a 1941 Gnome, it is news to me. It is not in any books or listings anywhere that I can find. The gnome looked just like the one in the Travelocity ads, so who knows if the two are related.

Can you imagine them at the Homer Laughlin China company designing the pieces in 1941 and deciding to throw in a gnome?
