I managed to acquire a new set of crib figures recently, the Church had only ever had the three primary figures, now everyone and his sheep are here.
We had a collection for a new monstrance, a few people were generous, and then our sisters mother house found they had a spare one which they gave us, so there was spare money.
This set are plaster, and handpainted, the figures -or at least the moulds they came from date from c1920 judging from the features, they are in perfect condition - every finger is present.
Now all I need is a Neopolitan or a Pole to start making the crib. Neopolitans do wonderful rocky landscapes whilst Poles make cribs with towers and pinnacles, either would be splendid. And now is the time to start planning.
