#759 Beaded Nativity

Acquired 2016

My sisters, Carole and Pennie, had been shopping together in quaint little Turlock's downtown shops. They saw this gold metal candle holder nativity set at an antique shop and decided it should be in my collection. The die cut metal includes a modern art styled stable, star, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus in his cradle and a sheep. The set was accented with white stringed beads on a gold strand. We all three thought it would look best without the beads until we took them off! The candle holder lost it beauty until we put the beads back. Therefore, I have named this gift set the “Beaded Nativity”. This set was added to my collection, November 2016.
