Nativity Figures


I have a variety of Nativity set folk.  Some are plaster ones I painted,
 
some are chalk, others composite.
 
This little baby I've had a few years now.
 
 
 
 
He's a very old German-made Jesus.
 
I'm featuring him today with just a little chalk lamb.
 
 
 
 
The fabric is hand painted here...
 
 
 
 
...the little curls on the Baby are tiny fibers
 
and the figure itself is made of wax. 
 
The manger is an old type of folded sand paper/ paper mache product.
 
He is the only wax figure I have.
 
But the attention to detail is minute, and it's obviously handmade.
 
 
 
 
I have never seen another like it.
 
Please share if you have matching imagery!

Love your baby Jesus. My mother had a plastic Jesus in a manger outside every winter...I could not stand for Him to not have a cover. Funny the way kids think. Smiles to you, Susie

What lovely pieces. Very unique and no doubt quite vintage with those details.
