#484 Forest Pinecone Nativity

Acquired 2007

This precious little set reminds me of being at the cabin. It is a simple set telling the story of the birth of Christ from a forest point of view. With a stable of pine and pinecone, Mary and Joseph worship over the Christ Child as He lies in His manger of pinecones. The attendants are not the usual shepherd and kings but a brown bear, a red fox, a little rabbit, and, of course, a deer! And then, what would a forest be without one other common creature - a mouse! Purchased October 2007, Kellers, $25.00.
