UNUSUAL VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC CHRISTMAS NATIVITY SCENE
WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC CHRISTMAS NATIVITY SET, WITH THE ORIGINAL BOX. What a great old Christmas decoration. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Putz, table top display, or Model Railroad, under the tree. Hard plastic Christmas nativity sets such as these, figurines, ornaments and home decorations, were sold in the local five and dime stores, from small towns to large metro cities after WWII, when exports from Japan, Hong Kong and Germany to the U.S. began again. This was the "Golden Age" of hard plastic Christmas Holiday decorations, the late 1940's, into the early 1960's. Unusual style and design. Rich, vibrant coloration. Beautiful detailing into the hard plastic mold. All of the figures are secure to the base of the creche. Heavy old mica glitter covers the tall, multi level roof. Shooting star at the top of the stable. The nativity scene is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. So is the "Modern Nativity Scene" box. Cellophane window intact. It measures about 5 1/2" tall, 3 1/2" wide, 1 1/2" deep. The nativity is marked on the bottom into the mold, "ART PLASTICS HONG KONG". The box is also marked, "HONG KONG 882". Produced 1950's-1960's.
