#246 Metal Nativity

Acquired 2000

From Lillian Vernon, this is one of those sets that I saw in their catalog and hesitated whether I would want to add it to my collection. But once it arrived, it was stunning and very unique! So glad I decided to have it delivered! Imaginatively handcrafted metal figures recount the Magi's visit 2000 years ago! Heirloom 6-piece set of Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus in the manger and three wise men are hand-cut, hand-shaped, and hand-painted in bold gemstone colors! The pieces are lacquer-protected for weather and rust resistance. Purchased, November 2000 - $59.98.
