#690 Ecuador Pottery

Acquired 2015

I received a phone call from Mary Baucher, a repeat previous guest of my Nativity Open Houses, who told me she had a special nativity set that she wanted to share with me if I was interested! Being so very grateful of her kind generosity, we made an appointment to meet in my office. She brought this colorful bread dough ten-piece awesome set that she has had since 2004. In that she attends the Brethren Church on Woodland Avenue, where Serv International has their Modesto location, she knew I was familiar with the organization that markets crafts and nativity sets from several countries made by local natives. Her set, made in Ecuador, came through Serv and, in that she is downsizing, she wanted to add it to my collection! The brightly colored pieces include Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus, along with three kings, a cow, a donkey and two sheep - one white and one pink! Thank you, Mary. May 2015.
