#727 Three Light Boxes

Acquired 2015

After visiting the coveted Carmichael craft fair, Carole and I learned of another one that same day at the Maidu County Park in Roseville, CA - only about 20 minutes from where we were. We headed up there and enjoyed another large array of craft booths. I found this lovely lighted glass box nativity set. I have seen these clear light boxes with nativities in other craft fairs, but this one was quite appealing. This crafter used two small boxes and the one large box in the middle - a set of three! The clear Christmas lights are inserted through the back access, and the nativity pictures in black are decals that are mounted on the front of each box. One small size for the shepherd, one small size for the three kings, and the Holy Family is prominent front and center on the large glass box. The three pieces connect to light with just one plug. I showed this piece for the first time at my Nativity Open House, and it brought many comments. Purchased December 5, 2015, $119.
