#686 Picture Frame

Acquired 2014

This lovely nativity reminds me of a picture frame in that the silver scroll design stable stands up like a picture and frames the three-piece Holy Family. Notice the same silver scroll design on the bottom hem of the Mary and Joseph pieces. The Baby Jesus figure is enhanced with natural tone outlines. The set was given to me as a gift from my sister, Pennie. She saw it at the Emanuel Hospital Gift Shop and said it was much too different and elegant to leave behind. I agree! Gift to me in November 2014.
