#440 Gold Thread Tree Nativity

Acquired 2005

Standing 12” high, this contemporary gold cylinder nativity tree is a gift from my sister-in-law, Kathryn Magruder, Christmas 2005, and she made it for me! She said by making a nativity she was sure not to duplicate anything in the collection! I was overwhelmed to see her unique creativity of this gorgeous piece. With the exquisite gold threads streaming down from the star to the 6” base, there are tiny, gold ornaments intertwined. The small figures of the nativity characters are placed onto the tree with wire and hanging from a gold thread. A beautiful star accents the top of the tree. An awesome, exclusive addition to my collection.
