The Cloche Nativity

2,200.00

The Cloche Creche is an intimate presentation of the nativity in a sparkling glass dome.  The focus is primarily on the Holy Family, with two lambs and two sheep (one tucked in the grotto at the back) and cherubs floating above.  This piece is crafted almost entirely of wood, and can be viewed from all sides.  The Original Ulrich figures are hand painted wood, from the sculpture studios of Ulrich Perathoner in Val Gardena, in the Italian Alps.  The Joseph figure is approximately 4.75” high.  The overall cloche is nestled on a 9” round wood base, and is about 17.5” high (without the rotating turntable).  The setting includes a hand crafted silk palm tree and Corinthian column, as well as an intricate hand made copper wire tree.  Included in the presentation is permanent balsam wreath that measures 19” across.  Also included is a jeweler’s turntable so that the nativity can be displayed in either one position or rotating for an unusual 360 degree presentation.  The glass dome makes displaying and storing very easy.

As with all Navidad nativities, a piece of rock from the hills of Umbria outside of Assisi is included in the setting as a tribute to St. Francis who created the first nativity in 1223.
