#482 Blue Nativity

Acquired 2007

My sister, Pennie, and her husband, Allen, were out shopping garage sales one Saturday and Allen stumbled across this pretty nativity set. He immediately thought of me but figured I probably had one. However, as he visited with the lady in charge, he found out it was handmade by her sister from Hanford. As they visited, she and her Hanford sister knew Chris Jordan, our cousin, and present Sheriff of Kings County. Therefore, he had to purchase it for my collection! (And because it is one of a kind, I do not have one like it!)! Each of these 10 pieces is accented in gold with a blue hue cast of color. It is very typical of nativities from the south looking like it came from Mexico. Joseph has dark black hair typical of their culture. Added to the collection, July 2007.
