An incredible set of 1950s chalkware Nativity scene figures. A collection of 20 pieces altogether with Wise men, animals and Joseph and Mary. Chalkware was especially popular in the mid 50's before plastic became popular. It is made of plaster of paris and was often used for moulding figures.
This wonderful set is in good condition for its age, with some signs of wear and plenty of character, the colours are still bright and handpainted detail can be seen on the figures clothing and faces.
Lots of charm to this collectable set which will continue to stand the test of time for many years to come.
NB. There is no baby Jesus in this set.
