Christmas Spirit Day 5

Silent Night, Holy Night
All is calm, All is bright.

Note*: These Nativity pieces are part of a larger set that my parents started for me as a child. They were hand made in Italy.

It looks like a lovely set. Do you have more pieces? I wonder if it is a Fontanini nativity? They are beautiful too.

That looks beautiful on your fireplace mantle. I love your Christmas Spirit posts.

Mellodee, Yes I have an angel. three wise men, 2 shepherds (one got broken years ago) a cow and a donkey. I still keep them in their original separate boxes. I doubt that they are Fontanini though. Would you believe each piece cost $1.98.(each piece has the price stamped on the bottom, and on the box.) Back in 1960 that was a lot of money to my parents, (or to anyone raising a family.) They made the sacrifice so that I might have a lasting remembrance of Christmas, and my childhood. The good thing is that my children treasure them as much as I do.

Curley, Thanks. I hope you get to see them. I wish I had enough room to display them all. Too much other stuff!! LOL!
