Object: Sculpture group antique nativity scene
Material: hand-painted hard gypsum
Estimated Period: 1930
Country of Origin: South Germany
Condition: Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes

Vintage complete Nativity scene.
Group of large and beautifully detailed antique Nativity images early 1930.
These old hand-coloured images have become wonderfully weathered over the years; There are some discolourations and 'chips' but no breakage or major repairs, only the angel has been updated. Their individual expression and detailing gives them a unique nostalgic look.

Includes: Baby Jesus in crib (Note: image is 'bigger' than normal proportion because on Christmas Eve the baby would be placed in the crib and got some extra attention), Mary and Joseph, three kings, three shepherds (young, with musical instrument, with lamb, old with staff, correct symbolism) angel, camel, ox, donkey, and two sheep.
Height varies between 14 cm (kneeling) and 20 cm.

From personal family property. Origin South-Germany.
Material: hand-painted hard plaster.
Total weight: 3.8 kg

See photos for your own impression. Note: Nativity stable in photos is decorative element, not included.

  • Bonsoir Madame, merci pour votre crèche. Elle trouvera sa place dans notre Abbaye. Vous l'avez bien emballée, elle est arrivée sans cassure. Mais elle méritera un bon coup de restauration...

    Cher Monsieur Deuel,
    Merci beauvoup pour votre message. Je suis très heureuse que la crèche a fait bon voyage. Je crois bien que mes photos montrent que certains figures avaient souffert du temps ( rien de cassé ) et des conditions qu'elles ont vues durant leur vie. Je crois aussi avoir indiquée leur état. Comme j'ai dit, c'est une crèche allemande et elle a vraiment vue la guerre...Elle appartenait à la famille de ma belle mère et a survécue les bombardements de Berlin... et a voyagéé en Belgique après la guerre... ayant serviee pendant plus de 50 ans...Je suis sûre qu'elle vais reprendre sa place légitime chez vous. Je suis très heureuse du refuge qu'elle a trouvéé. Un grand salut de la Belgique.
