#471 Child Nativity with Angel Backdrop

Acquired 2006

This 12-piece porcelain nativity scene is brightly colored with a reactive glaze finish and uses adorable children to invoke the image of the nativity pageant. The angel rises above the scene on a porcelain column backdrop. This set was given to me by Katie at the beginning of my 2006 Nativity Open House. She purchased it at Gottschalk's for $40.00 as she grabbed it out of my hand on our annual family “day after Thanksgiving shopping trip” in Sonora. I attempted to purchase it because it was so cute, but Katie decided it would be a good Christmas gift for me!
