#391 Silver Blessings

Acquired 2004

This set is a Hawthorne first for their company featuring porcelain sculptures accented in platinum silver. Each porcelain figurine tells the story of the nativity trimmed in glistening platinum silver illustration. The pieces are delicately hand-crafted and hand-painted, crafted entirely of lustrous, creamy ivory porcelain and then triple-fired to lend a touch of elegance. Soft pastels further enhance its precious beauty. This is a “progressive” mail order item with a new piece arriving every two or three months. It took over a year to complete the set in February 2006. Each shipment is $66.95. The completed set includes: A Lighted Shining Star CrecheMary, Joseph, and Baby JesusKing Melchior and Faithful CamelKing Gaspar and Angel of PrayerKing Balthazar and His Seated DonkeyRejoicing Angel and Devoted Donkey Every Faithful Sheepherder and Seated Bull
