Product Description

VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC CHRISTMAS NATIVITY SCENE
WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC CHRISTMAS NATIVITY SCENE, WITH THE ORIGINAL BOX. What a great old Christmas Holiday decoration. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Putz, table top display, or Model Railroad, under the tree. Can also be used as an ornament on your Vintage design 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. Beautiful detailing and coloration. The unusual tall A-Frame shape stable and pine tree, are heavily dusted with silver mica glitter, giving the scene a wintry snow effect. And, to have the original box in this good shape! This lovely Christmas Nativity set is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. It measures about 3 1/2" tall, 3 3/8" wide, 1 7/8" deep, and has a small hole in the back, so you can insert a small, mini size light. It is marked on the bottom into the mold, "MADE IN HONG KONG 8120".

What a great addition for your CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY collection!!!!
