Need Help from a Vintage Collector or Vintage Seller
My family and I recently held my grandma's estate sale. She was a minimalist and didn't have much, but I'm trying to get as much as I can from what she did have. We came across an old nativity that my mother says predates her, which would be before 1956. I've looked all over to find something similar or just like it all over the Internet and have found nothing. So I thought, ask my readers!
I'm usually very good at finding anything, but can't find this. There are no markings on it. The ceramic or porcelain pieces do not move, they are attached to the wood. The closest thing I found similar was a Sears Roebuck cardboard diecut (on Etsy), but this is neither diecut nor cardboard, but very similar is design with the 5 pieces and minimal look.
Can anyone tell me who made these? Or how much I could sell it for?
My family thanks you!
