#782 Nutcracker Nativity

Acquired 2017

I found this most unusual, unique Nutcracker two-piece nativity set at the Bethlehem, PA Nativity Convention. Rev. Charles Hull, of Dover, PA was closing out his collection and made his pieces available to us attendees. When I saw these two nutcrackers, I realized I do not have anything in my collection that is a nutcracker! So, I scooped up the set. It is just two nutcrackers as Mary holds the infant Jesus. While I don't know where he found these originally, I do see they were special issues from the year 2009. My price to Rev. Hull was $20. October 2017.
