WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE HARD PLASTIC CHRISTMAS NATIVITY SCENE, MADE IN GERMANY. What a great old Christmas Holiday decoration. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Putz or table top display. 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. Many early German pieces date pre war. Beautiful detailing and coloration. The unusual nativity features the Holy Family, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. This lovely Christmas Nativity scene is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. It measures about 3"tall, 2 7/8" wide. The Nativity is marked on the back into the mold, "GERMANY 745 1774". Comes in the original plastic box, paper tag marked, "GERMANY".

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