#380 The Magi Nativity Set

Acquired 2004

This is a traditional nativity set of vibrant color. Each resign figure is embellished with multicolored jewels, pearls, and tassels. The eight pieces range from two inches to ten inches tall. It is called the Winter Collection by United Design Corporation, Noble, OK. I ordered it from a Catholic mail order catalog, The Leaflet Missal, in November 2004. This traditional set features only the Magi and the angel with the Holy Family. It is meticulously detailed; the faces look as close to human as possible. The purchase price was $305.
