Humble and charming, our vintage chalkware nativity set just begs to be touched and handled by the little ones every Christmas season.
Often called plaster figures, these chalkware figurines are dated to the 1940s. Examine the photos and you can see they've had their share of loving touches as shown by the scattered chips, scratches and shabby surface wear.
This rustic collection includes ten good-sized pieces: Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus and manger, shepherd, donkey, cow and three sheep. Hand painted long ago; unmarked.
