For your consideration is a charming miniature nativity set made by Mexican folk artist Josefina Aguilar from Ocotlan de Morelos, Oaxaca. She is best known for her small clay figurines.
The set includes 8 miniature figures made of hand painted red clay - baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, three wise men, a shepherd, and a donkey. All are approx. 2-1/4" tall except for the baby Jesus and the donkey. They are approx. 1" long. All are signed Josefina Aguilar, except for baby Jesus and the donkey.
Good vintage condition with some paint wear. One wise man has a chip on the back of his crown. Another wise man has a chip on the end of his nose and a white spot on the back of his neck, which could be some errant paint. See the pictures for more details.
