Offering for sale a lovely pair of old nativity sheep or lambs. These were originally made to be part of a Christmas Nativity set, from Western Germany, one of them still has the markings underneath. They are of the old style lacquer over papier mache, and done in fabulous detail with a lot of character. As with any hand crafted item, they are very similar but not totally identical. Each sheep or lamb is approximately 3" long and in good condition, one of them has a repair on the front leg projection, you will only see it if you look for it. They do have the expected overall wear from age, but still very lovely. The price is for the pair, not sold individually. It is very rare to find any old nativity animals for sale, especially as nice as these.
