The Golden Christmas Manger

By Helen Sewell

Published By Simon and Schuster, Inc.

and Artists and Writers Guild. Inc.

Printed in the U.S.A.

Copyright 1948

"The Complete Folding Manger

With a book of Bible Characters to cut out and the

Christmas Story,

32 Beautiful Figures in Color"

The characters have never been cut out, nor does it seem to have ever been used.

"Complete Folding Christmas Manger" on one flap of the box, and

Beautiful Figures In Color By Helen Sewell on the other flap

(The Sewell part has been torn on that flap)

The box measures 10 1/4" x 9 1/4" x 3/4"

The book measures 7" by 8".

The golden parts of the box and in the book appear to be done in gold leaf ink.

The box has a tear in the bottom right front corner as I've shown in the pictures.

Both sides of the box say:

"THE GOLDEN CHRISTMAS MANGER, - SEWELL - SIMON AND SCHUSTER

On the back of the box it says

"A small child can easily set up this attractive manger and cut out and

arrange the beautiful figures which go with it.

Complete directions appear both in the book and under the yellow roof

of the manger.

The folding manger inside is complete with it's tabs to put it together.

The tabs are folded a little bit.

The yellow roof edges have curled under a little bit, with a slight fold across the roof.

The pictures are so beautiful with the the angels, Mary and Joseph and the Kings having a halo of "gold".

The back of the characters are done in blue and white giving an appearance of night.

The binding is in perfect shape

The book is as if it hasn't ever been opened.

I wouldn't have noticed that the right front lower corner had a slight bend to it until I held the page open, and felt it there.

The page which has the directions

"How To Make Your Golden Manger"

also has on it "For Louise Seaman Bechtel"

It also says at the bottom that it was

"DESIGNED AND PRODUCED BY THE SANDPIPER PRESS and ARTISTS AND WRITERS GUILD, INC. PRINTED IN THE USA BY WESTERN PRINTING AND LITHOGRAPHING COMPANY, PUBLISHED BY SIMON AND SCHUSTER. INC , ROCKEFELLER CENTER, NEW YORK 20, NY

The center of the book has a picture of the scene

"The Manger With Angels"

There is also the "The Christmas Story" in blue and white lettering.

There aren't any marks, nor any writing on any of the pages.

I've seen this for sale at other locations for 599.00 to 750.00 and the characters are cut.

If you have any questions, please feel free to convo me.

Thank you for stopping By!
