#538 Stocking Holder Nativity
Acquired 2008This is one of the more unique nativities I have in the collection. The set is three individual metal stocking holders and were a gift to me from my secretary, Evelyn Gonser, Christmas 2008. We exchanged names among our employees, and she had my name! The three individual stocking holders are quite heavy pieces with a silver pewter look. The center stocking holder is the Holy Family in a silver stable with the star above. Another piece is the angel and the shepherds looking toward the Holy Family and the third piece is the three kings bringing their gifts to worship the Baby Jesus. All three pieces are padded on the bottom so they can be placed on a windowsill, furniture edges, or on a fireplace mantle without scratching.
