It seems that during the 1970’s there was much production of nativity themed items such as porcelain plates. Many of my annual nativity collector’s plates date from the 1970’s. Today’s subject is a lovely example of this.
It is a plate from the Spanish firm, Lladro, and shows Mary with the Baby Jesus on her lap and the ox and the donkey behind them.
The soft blue border frames the raised figures on the plate. The clothing has great patterned detail.
Tha plate has all the grace and perfection that is a Lladro hallmark.
