This is a vintage Empire blow mold nativity trio… Joseph, Mary & baby Jesus with his manger crib. Overall these figures are in very good shape. But, as to be expected with these old blow molds, there are places on Mary and Joseph where the colors have rubbed off on their robes over the years. Mary seems to have had the worst of it, but is still very respectable looking. Joseph’s rubbed off colors are along the back in a few places for the most part. The worst “flaw” of this set is that at one time apparently the baby Jesus figurine was dropped, so his nose has a bit of a crush and small hole. Please see all photos!! All of the figurines have working internal lights. Joseph and Mary use regular 40 watt lamp bulbs and the baby takes a clear C7 (nightlight) bulb. (NO bulbs for Joseph and Mary included in this sale. Only the baby comes with a bulb.) Another “flaw” is that over the years the crib lost the screws that hold the two halves together, so it was repaired to functioning with pieces of wire run through the screw holes. The crib opens and closes just fine with this repair. The wire is rusty and blends into the brown of the crib well, so is hardly visible.
