#423 Bethlehem Christmas Dinnerware

Acquired 2005

This is an exclusive design of Lydia Home Collection. Lydia Home was founded by our own neighbor here in the Westport area, Lynn Garber's wife, Lori Garber. Lydia is a home party plan of inspirational home décor. Among the many lovely items, Lori included a Christmas dinnerware set featuring the story of the birth of Christ. The set includes eight place settings. Each one is a depiction of part of the story of the birth of Christ. Each place setting includes the 10” dinner plate and 7” salad plate. Both plates display the painting with the appropriate Scripture verse inscribed. The place setting also adds a bowl, cup, and a saucer. Each of these pieces is trimmed in blue with holly garland and holly berries. All pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe. Place settings are as follows:1. Mary and the Angel2. The Journey3. The Shepherd4. Angel of the Lord5. Heavenly Host6. Star of Bethlehem7. Mary, Joseph, and the Baby8. Wise MenIncluded in the set is a 14” platter which has the complete nativity scene, with the scripture from Isa. 9:6. My sister-in-law, Mary Jo, is a representative of the Lydia Home Collection, representing Lori Garber, and I purchased the dinnerware from her. Purchased, October 2005 at $35.00 per place setting. Platter, $39.00.
