Vintage Christmas Creche Nativity

I couldn't resist this unique vintage creche - truly an eye catcher! Each one of the figures is made of chalk ware or plaster-of-Paris and meticulously hand-painted by a Northern California artist. The colors and detail of the garments are quite stunning. A perfect find for any new or veteran collector.

The entire original set consists of: Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus in manger, 3 shepherds, 3 wise men, 1 camel, 1 dog, 2 sheep, 2 ox, 2 donkeys, an angel with the words, "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" and a stable. Circa 1950s.

Camel measures approximately 5-1/4 inches from nose to rear leg and about 5 inches in heigh.

The tallest man is the Wise Man with the black hat (standing next to the camel) and he is about 5-1/4 inches tall.

Mint vintage condition. One very tiny bite to the tip of one of the donkey's ears. Overall colors and details are rich and vivid.
