#389 Swedish Wooden Nativity Set

Acquired 2004

While visiting Solvang in November 2004, I was in a shop called Rasmussens. They feature gifts from Scandinavia and this Swedish nativity set, made in Sweden, was designed exclusively just for this store. It is an eight-piece nativity set and the stable folds flat for storage. It is typical of the artwork in Scandinavia. There are no faces on the nativity pieces which feature the three kings, the shepherd and his sheep, an angel, a palm tree, and, of course, Mary, Joseph, and the Baby dressed in white. Notice the bright yellow star on the unique stable design. The purchase price was $63.00.
