Composed primarily of figurines made from Holland Mold and Atlantic Mold, this large, vintage ceramic nativity scene features 18 pieces that were meticulously painted by what appears to be two individuals between the years 1978-81. Each piece is dated and initialed by the artist (either DEF or LM).
The set includes two creches of varying sizes, both from Atlantic Mold. The figurines all appear to be from Holland Mold and include: Jesus, Manger, Mary, Joseph, Angel, Wise Men (3), Shepherds (3), Sheep (2), Donkey, and Camels (2). Note that baby Jesus is separate from the manger for those who don't wish to place him in the scene until Christmas Eve.
Rich in detail, this charming set is sure to earn a place of honor among your holiday decor
