#32 Crystal Water Dome - Out of Circulation

Acquired 1987

A gift to me from Cousin Terri Simpson, in L.A., 1987. She sent this to me after she realized I collect nativities. This one came from her place of business, which is a craft shop called Artistic Gifts, Buena Park, CA. This is one that “snows” when turned upside down. It is a crystal ball and a crystal creche inside with a star at the top. When turned on (two triple A batteries) it lights up and plays, Silent Night. Unfortunately, the ball seal began to disintegrate, and the water seeped out of this molded piece. I had to discard it in 2008.
