#289 Opalescent Glass Nativity

Acquired 2001

A stunning, unique, distinctive nativity with its own quiet beauty. Ordered from Signal Gift Catalog, December 2001, these elegant nine pieces include Mary, Joseph, the infant Jesus in the manger, the three kings, a shepherd, donkey, and sheep. All are solid opaque glass and are quite weighty, making them less fragile than what they appear. The tallest piece is 6”. While it was listed in the catalog at $79, with “special offers” I was able to purchase it at $56.00!
