Sometimes called a Scandinavian kitchen witch, or cottage witch, a kitchen witch is a doll that lives someone in your kitchen. Her job is to ward off bad spirits and welcome in good fortune. In Norway, it was (and perhaps still is) believed that the kitchen witch would also keep pots from boiling over and food from scorching or burning.

Although we do not know precisely the country of origin, the kitchen witch is popular in many European homes. It is considered good luck to present a friend with a kitchen witch, especially when moving into a new home.

This wee little polymer clay kitchen witch, or Kitchen Krone, is about 2 inches high and can live anywhere in your kitchen . She especially likes sunny windowsills or the back of the stove, where she can better watch over your cooking.

This particular Kitchen Krone is named Glady and she is very maternal.

Her favorite colors are purple and gold, and, as you can see, she is quite fond of tie dye! What a regal Kitchen Krone she is!

Kitchen Krones are handcrafted in polymer clay. They are not recommended for young children, as they have small parts that may come off and present choking hazards.

Please let me know if you would also like a small broom/besom with your Krone. I will include one free of charge. Brooms have small wooden handles covered in polymer clay and a base of the same.

Please allow a couple of days for processing your order. Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions.

Gladys is a very glad Kitchen Krone. She is also very regal, in her purple and gold dress and kerchief.

Allow her into your castle to protect your kitchen and keep the hearth fires burning.

Remember, Gladys, like all Kitchen Krones, is not a toy.
