This is a beautiful hand painted pewter Nativity set made after the original from F.X. Schmaedl (1705 - 1777).

It was, in its original form, a Roccoco nativity hand carved from wood and made for the Cloister Church in Diessen in Germany.

This complete set by Wilhelm Schweizer is entirely hand cast pewter and each piece is hand painted on both sides.

This is a true family heirloom in the making and worthy of being handed down from generation to generation.

24 hand painted pieces in the set

The pieces are roughly 4" in size and the stable is roughly 8" in height.

The unparalleled Wilhelm Schweizer of Bayern hand painted pewter!
Known as Zinn in Germany, these pewter ornaments, whether standing or hanging pewter, are truly heirlooms in the making.

Hand made and hand painted by the talented artisans of Schweizer Pewter of Germany, they are made today precisely the same way they were made hundreds of years ago. And in the same place!
In the little Bavarian village of Diessen am Ammersee.

The standing and hanging ornaments are hand painted on both sides. The window and wall hangings are painted on one side. Please notethat since these are all hand painted, the same mold may appear different than the ones we show. That's the charm of Schweizer!

Begin your family tradition now, future generations will thank you.
