#418 Irish Blessings Nativity

Acquired 2004

All the blessings of the Emerald Isles, Irish Blessings Nativity is a Hawthorn Village Production. This heirloom quality nativity is crafted entirely of lustrous porcelain, with 22 carat gold accents. The shades of green of the lush Emerald Isle landscape, and the beloved Irish icons like the Celtic cross and the Celtic knot further enhance its precious beauty. Each individual piece is triple fired with meticulous sculpturing and hand-under glazing. This set is full porcelain, with a lighted creche. It arrived late at the close of my 2004 Nativity Open House and it was not a complete set at that time. This set is ordered section by section, as many other nativities from Hawthorn Village. Each set is $59.95, plus shipping and handling. The first shipment was the creche with the three sheep. The second shipment was the holy family - Joseph, Mary, and the Baby. The shepherd, kings, and animal pieces were sent every few months and the set was complete by 2007.
