THE GEORGE HARRISON PROMOTIONAL GNOMES


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Created to promote the 50th anniversary of Harrison’s classic “All Things Must Pass” — which is almost universally regarded as the best solo album — the package includes miniature plastic reproductions of the four gnomes depicted on the album’s cover, along with a scale rendering of Harrison seated on a stool. 
 
The photo was taken by Barry Feinstein in 1970 at Friar Park, Harrison’s gorgeous, sprawling estate in Henley-on-Thames north of London, which was built in 1889 and originally owned by an eccentric lawyer named Sir Frankie Crisp (who even gets name-checked in one of the album’s songs).
 
Friar Park has taken on an iconic status in Beatles lore, immortalized not only on this album but also the gloriously odd 1976 video for Harrison’s song “Crackerbox Palace,” which was directed by Monty Python’s Eric Idle and stars Harrison, his wife Olivia, Python auxiliary player Neil Innes and various other gnomes. Needless to say, the gnomes tug at the requisite Beatles fan’s heartstrings.

The box says “Gnome set” in large letters, with the gnomes, plastic George and a box illustrated with the iconic photo’s background and lettering reading “George Harrison All Things Must Pass 50th Anniversary.” 
The package : with lumps of plastic housed in two boxes with styrofoam molds.
