The Christmas nativity set by Alessi: Created with Italian joie de vivre.

Smart, friendly, colourful – a real eye-catcher in precious, hand-painted porcelain.

“Merry Christmas” – the phrase has been taken literally here, and is the inspiration behind this magical porcelain nativity set. Each figurine reflects the humour of the internationally renowned comic artist and illustrator Massimo Giacon (born 1961). Thus, he has given the traditional nativity scene a new, friendly face. And the result is most charming. The press is also impressed: “A reinterpreted tradition that definitely belongs under the tree”, said the German decorating magazine “Schöner Wohnen” (June 2012), for example.
Each piece is hand-painted and unique.
Carefully fired at up to 800 °C, the porcelain takes on a glossy surface, which is extremely hard and resistant to cracks and craquelling. Each figurine has been lovingly decorated in bright colours in line with traditional porcelain painting: Carefully done by hand with brush and paint, rather than with ready-made decals. As such, each figurine is slightly different, resulting in unique individual pieces.
The stall, with its 8 humorous figurines, is a must for Christmas.
The Christmas Nativity is a complete set: The stall, which features a glistening gold exterior and a porcelain-white interior, provides a perfect stage for the holy family – whilst its spherical shape also offers protection from the weather and danger. Mary and Joseph smile with satisfaction standing next to Baby Jesus, whilst oxen and donkeys look on in curious amazement. The golden comet beams as if it had just happily landed on the roof. 2 sheep wait outside the stall: One is standing and one is lying down. The stall measures approx. 16 x 13.5 x 13cm (6 1⁄5" x 5 1⁄3" x 5") (W x H x D). Figurines approx. 4 to 9cm (1 1⁄2" to 3 1⁄2") in height and length respectively. The complete set weighs approx. 1.2kg (2.6 lbs).
Additional sets can be purchased to turn the stall into a complete Christmas story.
With precious gifts and magnificent apparel, the 4.8cm (2") tall Three Wise Men pay their respects. Meanwhile, the Camel Driver arrives in an elegant white burnouse – naturally with a camel in attendance (each 5cm/ 2" in height). The Musical Angels with their guitar, trumpet, piano, saxophone, drum and harp (each 5cm/ 2" in height) play a happy serenade. All figurines should be washed by hand. Made in Italy.
