#565 Pennie's “Emanuel” Set

Acquired 2010

While we don't exchange gifts anymore, my precious sister, Pennie, called and wanted to come to see me, November 2010, - she had a “little something” for me! The “little something” was this large, elegant, traditional gorgeous three-piece nativity set that she found in the gift shop of the Turlock Emanuel Hospital where she works. The pieces are of a papier maché type material and look very heavy but are not.What caught her attention in this nativity set was that Joseph is carrying a lantern which she had never seen before - therefore, she wanted it to be part of my collection. It is designed by Creative Co-Op in Memphis, TN. Her purchase price was $98.
