#46 Precious Moments Revolving Nativity - No Longer Musical

Acquired 1992

Purchased at the Family Book Store in Turlock, 6/6/92, half price, $69.95. I had been given a $50 gift certificate from Women's Ministries at the end of the May lecture series, 1991-92, and used it towards this special nativity.This beautiful Precious Moments Nativity Musical Carousel has been painstakingly handcrafted of the finest hardwoods and delicately hand painted in a soft, gentle palette. Each beloved Precious Moments Nativity subject has been exquisitely sculptured in fine detail, from the Baby Jesus to the little lamb keeping watch beneath the Star of Bethlehem. This two-tier action musical gently revolves. The tune: “O Come All Ye Faithful” plays as the double level subjects revolve. By Enesco Corporation. As the years have gone by, the music box of this piece has ceased working. I've taken it in to a repair shop, but they were not able to fix it. The nativity can still be shown, but with no revolving movement or music.
