#813 Winter Silhouette

Acquired 2018

This elegant larger pure white alabaster tabletop Holy Family was donated to me by Dorthea Duroy from her personal collection. She invited me to her home to see her nativities and was choosing to release this incredible set and wanted to share it with me. I told her it would be a wonderful addition to my collection as I was seeking larger tabletop display sets. Joseph is 15” tall and Mary is 12” tall. Jesus rests in a separate black wrought iron stable. Dorthea purchased the set in 1990 from Morris Nursery for $174.95. The set is made by Department 56, entitled Winter Silhouette. My purchase price was a gift of almonds to her! She would not allow me to pay for the set. January 2018.
