#549 Portugal Gift Nativity

Acquired 2009

This stunning nine-piece nativity set was made in and comes from Portugal. It is a gift to me by way of David and Kathy Saaty in 2009. Kathy's dear friend, Pam from Paul Patterson's Jewelers, gave the set to Kathy to pass on to me knowing I collect nativities. Pam's friend's dad lived in Portugal and since passed away. The friend went to Portugal to close her dad's estate and found three of these sets! She brought them back to California and shared them with Pam - who shared two of them with Kathy - who shared one with me!
