Blue Monday - Vintage German Nativity

For Blue Monday I’d like to share a vintage nativity made in Germany. Each piece has the word 'Germany' impressed on the side of the figure. This set is painted in delicate colors including a soft blue on some clothing worn by Mary and Baby Jesus.



The scene consists of Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus, an ox, a donkey, three standing sheep and one resting sheep.


This lovely porcelain set is a graceful traditional rendition of Christ's nativity.
