Description

Rare Vintage Full Figure Fontanini Heirloom Nativity 6" Series ~ King Balthazar

Fontanini Heirloom Nativity figures, crafted in the old Tuscan tradition of figurine making, are prized for their lifelike sculpting, meticulous hand painting and attention to detail.

This is a full figure representation of King Balthazar, a Nubian prince who journeyed from Africa to pray before the Child. Balthazar carried the most valuable treasure he could gather: myrrh. It symbolized the passion of Jesus and foretold His destiny. Dressed in desert robes and a cloth beneath his crown to protect him from the heat, Balthazar wore soft slippers so that he might not disturb the Child when he found Him.

The figure of King Balthazar is 6 1/4" high (scaled for the 6 1/2" Series). It is crafted of specially formulated high density nearly indestructable and child-friendly polymer resin that captures the original sculpture's fine details and resists chipping and breaking. This Nativity creche figurine is hand painted in the rich colors of Tuscany and antiqued for a distinctive wood-carved appearance.

Signed by Master Sculptor Elio Simonetti and marked on the underside with a small spider and the words "Depose Italy". In Very Good condition. This Fontanini Nativity creche figurine will make an excellent choice for a classic and timeless Christmas display.
