#738 Three Nested Nativity

Acquired 2015

We were delighted to have Allen and Pennie's son, daughter-in-law and their three princesses visit this Christmas season, 2015, from Seattle, WA area. This is the first time they have been able to be here for our Italian style Christmas traditions and to see my nativity collection. We set a date and time so that they could see the display. Their three daughters also came - ages 3, 6 and 10. The three-year old, Raegan, loved seeing Baby Jesus - and found a few sets where some of the figures had fallen over. She searched and searched until she would find one that she could stand back up! That was her mission which she thoroughly enjoyed!While visiting the collection, they blessed me with this lovely three-piece nested nativity. The larger piece is Bethlehem, the second smaller nested piece are two shepherds with an ox, donkey, and lamb. The smallest nested piece is the Holy Family. The largest piece is about 7” tall. Thank you, Kenny and Melissa.
