Lenox Little Town Of Bethlehem Porcelain 3-Piece The Holy Family
Beautifully sculpted and sure to be cherished as a gift, the Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph figurines in this set from Lenox's Little Town of Bethlehem collection are hand-painted with earthy tones and gilded with hand-applied accents. Eyes and faces are intricately detailed, and the Christ child can be lifted off his hay-lined bed. The ivory fine china figurines employ a mixture of matte and glossy finishes. Joseph, kneeling, measures 3-3/4 inches tall.
Of all of Lenox's nativity collections, the Little Town of Bethlehem is perhaps the most realistically represented and colored. A well, stable, and palm tree oasis are available to provide a setting for the nativity, while figurines include the Three Kings, angels, a shepherd, camel and more. Each figurine or set comes packaged in a sturdy gift box that doubles as a safe storage box. Introduced in 2002, the Little Town of Bethlehem collection adds new pieces to the series each year. --Ann Bieri
