#26 Miniature Pewter Precious Moments

Acquired 1989

I ordered this hand-painted miniature pewter set from the Best to You catalog in 1989. The pieces which are quite heavy, include a nine-piece nativity (Mary, Joseph, Baby, two shepherds, and four little lambs), the three kings, stable-wall, palm tree, and three animals (cow, camel, and donkey). I paid $132.90 for the entire grouping as follows:Wall & Palm Tree, $25.50Three Kings, $27.953-piece Animal Set, $31.509-Piece Nativity, $47.95In 1990, I added the newest pieces, an Angel with Light (on a wall), $24.95, and an Angel with Trumpet, $11.95. Also released in 1990, were three kings riding on camels, which I did not purchase. In 1991, the newest piece to the set, which I purchased, was the little drummer boy at $8.95.
