Vintage complete Nativity scene.
Group of large and beautifully detailed antique Nativity images early 1930.
These old hand-coloured images have become wonderfully weathered over the years; There are some discolourations and 'chips' but no breakage or major repairs, only the angel has been updated. Their individual expression and detailing gives them a unique nostalgic look.
Includes: Baby Jesus in crib (Note: image is 'bigger' than normal proportion because on Christmas Eve the baby would be placed in the crib and got some extra attention), Mary and Joseph, three kings, three shepherds (young, with musical instrument, with lamb, old with staff, correct symbolism) angel, camel, ox, donkey, and two sheep.
Height varies between 14 cm (kneeling) and 20 cm.
From personal family property. Origin South-Germany.
Material: hand-painted hard plaster.
Total weight: 3.8 kg
