#760 Oriental Bamboo

Acquired 2016

This half-moon shaped nativity is probably from Asia somewhere - although we don't know for sure. It has an oriental look in the style of wood - bamboo, and in the appearance of the figures. The backdrop displays Bethlehem on a star-studded night and has been hand drawn. The Holy Family, the three kings and two little sheep pieces are mounted on the base. On the side of the half-moon are two candle holders for small candles.This piece was a gift to me from my sisters, Carole and Pennie, from their antique shopping trip in Turlock. Added to the collection November 2016.
