#856 Viet Nam Paper Miniature

Acquired 2019

On the opening day of our Open House, December 2019; Linda Evans headed up a senior group from the Church of the Brethren on Woodland Avenue. Twenty-four guests toured our Open House, and it was a delight to host them. Linda had a little gift for me which I appreciated. As I opened the gift bag, I found this sweet one-piece small nativity from View Nam. Very similar to the other sets I have, this one is small and delicate. Typical of their artwork, it is made of paper including Mary, Joseph, and the Baby. The star rests on top of the stable. This piece is about 4” tall and is marketed by Serv, International. In that this church houses a gift shop of Serv, International items, I am sure Linda found it there to support this fine self-help organization. Thank you, Linda, for your kind generosity. December 2019.
