Ruby Tuesday – Stained Glass Nativity Scenes

For this post I thought I’d share stained glass nativity scenes from the collection. As many of them include the color red, it fits right in for Ruby Tuesday.

First up are vintage stained glass votive holders, a round nativity scene and a Christmas tree.


Next is a small stained glass tableau with pewter nativity figures on a brass base. Made in Italy, 3 1/8" tall. A shooting Star intersects the round stained glass.


This one-piece stylized nativity is made from a panel with stained glass framed in pewter.



A 9-piece nativity set includes a Star and a 10" high stand. Figures depict Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus in manger, an Angel and Three Wise Men.



This hand crafted nativity set was made in USA [Virginia?] and has 7 pieces, ranging in height from 4 to 11 inches. Done in soft pastel colored glass, the set is "handcrafted by a local art teacher, all proceeds from sale will go to support his non-profit private Christian school." Figures are: Mary with Jesus, Joseph, Three Wise Men, Donkey and one Sheep.
