All the pieces to erect the stable/manger/creche centerpiece, in box. [nearly-] complete 1980′s/1990′s Avon Porcelain Nativity Set in Boxes; these pieces may have been used, but evidence NO abuse! Each is dated on the base, the years range from 1981 through 1992; therefore they range in age from 23 to 35 years, and have a beautiful porcelain patina, not shiny, more like powdery, retaining a slightly off-white shade. The protective boxes and their Styrofoam inserts show a bit of wear, as these have done their job admirably in protecting their delicate contents when moved and stored between display periods. A rare and remarkable and desirable and TIMELY beautiful Christmas gift for you or your loved ones! The prized piece is the “flying” or “hanging” angel, which, though smaller than the standing angel, has a small wire loop imbedded in the back between its wings, and is designed to allow use as a hanging ornament, to be hung from the stable rafters so as to be hovering above the scene, or on the tree!

From the research that I’ve done thus far, the only pieces presumed missing from the complete set are. Shepherd Boy w/lamb 1993. All these pieces have been found to be in LIKE NEW/MINT condition with NO: chips, cracks, smudges, writing, marks or marker marks, stains or repairs. [from an enclosure that serendipitously fell from one of the boxes when I was examining the condition].
