This German chalkware nativity set consisting of Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus has seen many years of use. Each piece has many chips and weathered wear. Joseph has had one hand glued back and baby Jesus is missing part of one. However, the set has a wonderful story to tell with all of its aged detail. If 'weathered and worn' are the cornerstone in your decorating, this nativity set is for you. Details for each figure are-
- Joseph- 8” x 4" Germany
- Mary- 6” x 4” Germany
- Baby Jesus- 3 1/2” x 4” Germany
The majority of the items used for the vignettes are antiques or thrift store finds and not reproductions. Ironstone dishes and other antiques have the built in character of crazing, minor chips, browning and other signs of use through the years. This authentic look of age and wear all lends itself to the romance of french country or the comfort of farmhouse bringing character and charm to your home.
