#668 Puzzle Tree Nativity

Acquired 2013

This piece, by Roman Inc. of Bloomingdale, IL, comes from their Joseph's Studio collection. This also was a Christmas gift from our daughter, Janine, in response to her learning the collection could use some taller sets for display. This piece is a tabletop Christmas tree design, with the top first level being the star, the angel is the second level of the tree - with a king and a shepherd being the third level of the tree. The other two kings form the fourth level, and the lowest level of the tree is the Holy Family. The tree then rests on a “tree stand” for table display. The most unusual part of the “Tree” is that the four pieces of each level are removable as puzzle pieces!!! Christmas, 2013.
