#755 Lemon Nativity

Acquired 2016

While Jordan was in Italy in June 2016, her Dad, Mom and Grandma Carolyn were also there to site see and catch up with Jordan. Joe's Mom, Carolyn, (also Italian), had never been to Italy and it was a joy that she could join them on this monumental trip. Jordan was in school in Southern Italy, and Carolyn's family was from Northern Italy, but they were able to join Jordan in the country middle - Rome!In their travels, they visited the stunning, gorgeous Amalfi Coast. The lovely tourist area is known for its many lemon fields. The lemon harvest is huge for that area and tourism is brought in by using lemons in many forms - the main one being Limoncello, a popular lemon drink. Lemon items appear everywhere including this darling ceramic lemon with the Nativity Holy Family! When Janine saw this item, she knew it had to come home with her to add to our collection. The lemon is “open” and adorns a green trim and a mounted angel. The Holy Family resides inside the lemon. It is complete with a white pansy flower petal on the bottom open trim. Thank you, Janine.
