Creche / by Dave Hileman

Yesterday I posted a more modern interpretation of the birth story creche. It was purchased at a consignment store in Williamsburg a couple of years ago. I really like it but know nothing about it. There are no markings on the pieces. 

Not true of today's post. This was Cindy's since she was a little girl. It was a gift from her parents. We are not sure when the three Swiss shepherds, nearly giant status, arrived but we have had them for a long time. The shed has had some repair and we think baby Jesus arrived from another set. That is not a theological point. I really like the camel and his holder. This years' setting was by designer Ellary Bee - first time in decades I did not arrange the figures. Good job Ellary.
