#900 Sprinkles Christmas Choir Nativity
Acquired 2022Sprinkles is a commercial line of figurines that were released and quite popular in the late 1990’s. Created by Nancye Williams of Minneapolis, Minnesota, she is the owner of Studio G. Five and is an artist, designer, and author. Her line of Sprinkles is no longer made, but some pieces can be found on the internet.My nativity, from the collection of Kathi Apel, is a combination of Nancye’s Christmas Choir of angels and Christmas nativity pieces. Both are soft pink in color, have green holly leave accents and “sprinkles” of glitter. The set includes the five-piece choir as two items with a separate choir director. The nativity includes Mary, Joseph, and the Baby. A small stable wall is included. The two sheep are an accessory to the set and not designed by Nance Williams. The production and release date of this choir/nativity is 1997. I acquired the set through Dani Morgart, Kathi Apel’s granddaughter, October 2022. The original price of the pieces is unknown, but some can be found on the internet for about $20 - $25 per item.
