WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC EXPANDABLE 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. 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. Very unusual expanding, scissor action design, to change the size of the Nativity scene. And, to have the original box, it is in fair condition, some old tape, but top and bottom flaps keep box closed. This lovely Christmas Nativity set is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. When closed, it measures about 4 1/4" wide, 2 3/4" tall, 2 3/4" deep. It can be opened to about 7 1/4" wide The box is marked, "MADE IN HONG KONG NO.402".

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