Collection of 15 vintage c. 1960 carved and painted wood nativity figurines made by the master carvers of the renowned ANRI workshop in the South Tyrol region of Italy. The details on these small figurines that average 5 inches tall are wonderful. The collection includes Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, the three kings, and four shepherds – two kneeling, one holding a lamb, and one playing a flute. The animals in the collection are an ox, a donkey, a camel, a sheep, and a sheep with a lamb.
The ANRI wood-carving workshop was founded in 1912 and has been run by five generations of the Riffeser family.
Condition is very good with minor wear consistent with age. The ANRI stickers that had been affixed to the bases have fallen off.
