#336 Fontanini Inn

Acquired 2002

Again, while Bob was on his way back from his hunting trip, he stopped at the Christmas store in Sand Point, Idaho, and chose this set for me. While this backdrop implies a more elegant inn, we know Baby Jesus was born in a very humble cave. Therefore, the characters are placed outside the Inn in this nativity. This set creates a beautiful merging of the Inn and the humble stable setting. Combine the three kings, the angel, the shepherd, the Holy Family, along with the five animals, the typical figures by Fontanini add beauty and grace to this scene. Purchase date 11/2002. Purchase price $450.00. I am now fortunate enough to have a large Fontanini Village and this Inn set.
