"Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My favourite thing to do is buy Christmas ornaments and its getting to the stage where Im going to need a bigger tree! I couldnt pass up the opportunity to buy these though - theyre beautiful pieces of art. I am already displaying them as I didnt want to wait until Christmas and I dont think you can ever have too many angels around you!

This was stored on arrival. It arrived timely but after Christmas so went directly into storage without being opened. I am counting on it being bright and beautiful.

"Even more beautiful than it appears on this page!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have a small collection of Fair Trade Nativities from around the world and saw this one and wanted to add it to my collection. It is even more BEAUTIFUL in than the photograph can possibly portray. I was simply astounded by the simple elegance of this nativity. The craftsmanship is superb. I wish that I could give this six stars as it surpass the expectations I had when I ordered it. Thank You for your fine work in making this.
