#77 Glass Creche
Acquired 1993Another gift to me from Mom while visiting Eureka Springs, Ark. on one of her trips October 1993. She found this delicate hand-blown glass stable, and hand-painted attached figures of The Holy Family at a gift shop next door to The Brass Latch. This delicate Silvestri Corporation piece was purchased for $29.This piece was accidentally dropped December 1995 and the glass stable around the Holy Family broke. Rather than discarding the entire piece, I broke off the remaining stable and it became this newly pictured creation.
