Lenox China Jewels Nativity

Several creche sets in the collection must be kept put away due to the amount of display space they take up. One example is the Lenox China Jewels nativity set, which is used every year during the Christmas holidays as the centerpiece of the dining room table. Before putting the set away I took photos of the groupings of figures in the table setting. See the tablescape post here.

First on the left, are the Wise Men and their Camel Driver and Camels.

In the middle is the Family, along with Angels , the Innkeeper and the Drummer boy

Further along are a few angels


The last group includes the Shepherds, sheep, goats, and fowl and a palm tree.
