#901 Nativity Wagon Pageant

Acquired 2022

Made by Enesco, this four-piece porcelain nativity is designed by Artist Mabel Lucie Attwell and was released in 1994. Mabel often helped put Christmas programs together at her father-in-law’s church, and this charming Nativity Wagon Pageant is a tribute to the long-ago days that remain such endearing memories of childhood...when make-believe was a celebration of that very first Christmas and the children’s pageant made it all come to life. The depiction of this pageant is of Mary with her Baby in His Little Red Pull Along! The four-piece set includes the backyard wall with a little bear peering over the top, Mary shushing the Baby and Joseph with his staff. Baby Jesus is resting comfortably in his pull along wagon.I acquired the set through Dani Morgart who is dispersing her late grandmother’s nativity collection. I purchased the set below estimated cost in October 2022.
