#803 Rustic Craft One Piece Nativity

Acquired 2017

This rustic homemade nativity is a gift to me from Kathy Krigbaum, who attended our Open House in 2017. We had run into Kathy and her husband, Ed, while having dinner at The Fruit Yard in November. She asked about my showing, and I gave her the dates. She has attended other Open Houses in the past but not in recent years. Kathy and Ed did come and brought this lovely nativity. She attended a small craft fair of local church members from the General Baptist Church on Central Avenue (where my sister-in-law, Mary, attends) and saw this handmade nativity there. Having purchased it, Kathy wanted to add it to my collection. The piece includes a rustic style three sided stable mounted on a wood floor. The figures are made from colorful cloth, pieces of wood and cotton and are mounted on the wood floor. Included is the Holy Family, a shepherd, three sheep, and the three kings. A gift, December 2017.
