RARE Vintage 1950's / 60's Mid Century 23 Pc. Wooden Hand Painted Nativity Scene - Made in Italy
Circa: 1950's / early 60's - this belonged to my boyfriend.
He played with this toy as a child and it dates from the late 1950's / early 1960's.
He had many wealthy relatives who would give him very nice toys from around the world. It has been stored well over many decades by his mother.
Made in Italy.
There are no makers marks, the green piece is stamped "Italy" and very hard to see.
Beautiful mid century nativity scene of the birth of Jesus Christ.
All the pieces are hand carved wood and hand painted with many details.
23 Pieces in total.
Platform green piece, the background piece, two wood red roof pieces, trees, animals, tiny baby Jesus, the virgin Mary....
The pieces are small pieces and not intended for small children these days like back then when toys could be dangerous choking hazards.
I think this is a cool thing to have set up during Christmas for display, it's very mid century looking if you have a mcm home.
Not so much for children of a young age to play with these days. Small pieces can be a choking hazard.
Size: The figurines are about 1-2" in height and the manger is 5" long x 3" tall x 2" deep. The manger pieces all detach. The green piece has a line where the background piece sets in really well and the 2 red roof pieces slide on top of the background piece.
Condition: Very good vintage condition. Has some normal signs of age and wear. Some paint loss and some fade to the stained wood areas. The background piece has some light cracks which do not go all the way through. Colors of the paint are still very bright. Craftsmanship is quite something on this set.
Beautiful to display in your mcm home with your mcm furniture during the holidays.

We pay a lot to have things cleaned and repaired, but remember these items are old & used and things could be missed. We do not guarantee these things because they are not new. If shoes break heels, need new adhesive, need new soles, new inserts these are things we cannot promise won't need to be repaired, especially once worn. We do not put all our items through a test by wearing them ourselves so we cannot guarantee them needing further restoration.
NO REFUNDS or PARTIAL REFUNDS ARE ISSUED. ALL Vintage ITEMS ARE DESCRIBED TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY.

Rare vintage items are expensive as well as collectible. We focus on the fellow collector in our business. This is why items are put into the best condition we can possibly get them in. Our cleaning bills are what stores pay in rent every month, but we put this money into the products we sell instead.
