#168 Bell Nativity

Acquired 1996

I gave this precious nativity bell to my mom to add to her small collection when Bob and I returned from Washington, DC, August 15, 1984. So typical of my mom, she had this dated with a small tag inside the bell - otherwise, I might not have even remembered that I gave it to her! Upon her home going to Jesus, April 14, 1997, as we three girls divided her precious belongings, this bell was returned to me. Designed by George Z. Lufton and made of hand-painted alabaster, copyrighted in 1982, it is number 03431 of The Christopher Collection. It includes an angel pendant, and the bell includes the birth of Jesus, the Flight to Egypt, and Jesus with His disciples.
