Nativity Set, 17 Pieces Hand Painted, Felt Bottoms, Made at Maxwell Air Force Base in 1969

Add to Cart
This is truly an awesome nativity set! Rudimentary nativity sets contain Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus. Larger sets add the three Wise Men. Still larger sets include a shepherd with a lamb and perhaps a sheep or two. This set contains all that, plus a boy with a musical instrument, a man with a basket of some kind of fruits, a servant, a couple of camels (one standing, one bedded down), a goat, a donkey and a cow. Each piece has felt glued to the bottom and trimmed to fit the contours of the base of the piece. The felt bottom has been mostly removed (I didn't do it!) from one of the pieces (the cow) to reveal that the piece has been marked "P.A.K." and "A.F. 15U724, Maxwell AFB, 2-1-69".

This set has been well loved over the decades since it was made, and a few of the pieces have wear marks. It appears that the goat was probably chewed on by a puppy, and the head has most of the paint removed. This set has apparently been carefully packed away, however, and aside from normal wear (and a puppy!), it is in great shape.

Please see the photos to see for yourself the condition of this extraordinary nativity set.

I do not believe it would be safe to attempt to ship this nativity set with any other items.

    I strive to ship within one business day of the placement of an order.

My apologies for the delay.
