#516 The New Thimble Nativity

Acquired 2008

This complete 11-piece set includes a wooden stable that serves as the backdrop for ten polyresin thimbles, crafted with the look of handmade wood carvings. There are thimbles that represent the Holy Family, three kings, a shepherd, an angel, and two farm animals. The star attaches to the top of the stable, so that it shines over the Christ Child. Purchased from Collections Etc. in October 2008. Purchase price $14.99.
