Guest Book
Purchased at an Indiana estate sale, this is a very special nativity set! Each piece is stamped Germany and the pieces are small. There are 3 Wisemen (2 5/8”, 2 5/8”, 2 ¾”), 1 shepherd (2 5/8”), 1 cow (2 1/8” long, 1 ¼” tall, ¾” wide), 2 sheep (1 ½” long, 5/8” tall, ½” wide, the other is 1 3/8” long, ¾” tall, ½” wide). The Holy Family – Mary is 2 ½” tall, Joseph is 2 ¾” tall, Baby Jesus is 1 ¼” long and, at one time, appears to have been glued to the little manger. This set is special for several reasons: it’s from Germany, the small size, the wonderful condition, and the handwritten note that was inside the box. The note reads “Manger figures from childhood of M.G.W.”. There is and (over) and the other side reads “brought to Freelandville from Downers Grove Home”.
