The perfect way to begin your Lenox Nativity collection. Made of ivory fine china, the three-piece set includes Joseph, baby Jesus, and Mary figurines, each accented with precious gold and colorful enamel jewelling.
Lenox produces a wide array of fine china animals and figurines for its China Jewels collection. Introduced in 2003, this Holy Family of ivory china forms the focal point of a home nativity arrangement. Mary's cowl, Joseph's robe, and Jesus's halo are accented with 24-carat-gold and embellished with tiny enameled dots, the 'jewels' of the collection's name. A two-inch-long plastic crystal Star of Bethlehem with a gold hanging cord is also included with the set.
A superb gift for a special person or family at the holidays, the Holy Family comes packaged in a sturdy gift box that doubles as a storage box. Joseph stands 6-1/4 inches tall, kneeling Mary 5 inches tall, and Baby Jesus 3 inches long. Other nativity figurines from the China Jewels collection include the Three Kings, angels in adoration, a shepherd, various animals, and a palm tree for ambiance. Additional pieces are added to the Lenox series each year. --Ann Bieri
