#830 Nesting Doll Trio

Acquired 2018

This set is an ingenious way to tell the nativity story and to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It is nine-pieces that nests in sets of threes. Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus – the first nest from tallest (about 6”) to smallest (2”). Next, the kings are three graduated nesting sizes, and the last set of three is the shepherd with his lamb, the cow, and the donkey. The nine total pieces nest down to three. The figures are a very heavy resin and dolomite – and with the nesting effect, every head comes off! A Roman Design new this year, I purchased the set through Catalog Classics mail order service. Purchased November 2018, $79.95.
