Nativity Sets - Emil Helbig Workshop - The Classic plus New for 2014

Posted on November 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

We are pleased to now have back in stock the popular Emil Helbig Workshop Nativity Set.
We also offer most of the figures separately, including a starter set of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. The stable and two of the three shepherds, however, are only available with the full Helbig set. The Helbig Workshop of Grunhainichen, Germany - Since 1933 - is the oldest woodcarving workshop in the Ore Mountains. Their work was recently celebrated in a special exhibition at the Toy Museum in Seiffen, Germany.
In addition to carrying their nativity set and figures and an increasing number of their other figures, we have enjoyed creating throughout the years Creche/Krippen/Crib sets with Helbig figures in a variety of Stables made in Bavaria and this year with a "Forest" platform from the Erzgebirge. Included in the larger sets are miniature accessories (pitchforks, pails, stacks of firewood, and the like) from Bavaria, plus trees from the Erzgebirge--everything handcrafted in Germany.
We thought we would share them here, beginning with the basic nativity figures on the Erzgebirge tree platform:
The set includes a solid hand-carved tree and a standing sheep. 
A small Bavarian stable shelters Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, and the three Kings:
Trees and accessories complete the scene.
And a larger, beautifully hand-crafted Bavarian Stable creates two additional sets. The first 
includes a Helbig Angel and sheep, accessories and a hand-carved tree. 
The second
includes the Helbig Angel and a sheep and the three Kings.
Click on the images or links above to find the Nativity Sets in our shop where you will be able to focus in on the details.
Each is unique, original, and elegant.  Enjoy!
