This Nativity set was handcrafted in Northern Thailand at the Mengrai Kilns in Chiang Mai. Celadon is a high-temperature fired stoneware with a subtle random crackle surface. The glaze is composed of silt from a rice paddy field and wood ash. The pieces are fired in a green, celadon, color in a reduction process at a temperature between 1,260 and 1,300 degrees Celsius. The process is thought to have originated about 2000 years ago in China and is a specialty of Northern Thailand. The traditional process continues today. It is a manmade attempt to duplicate opaque jade, since jade is strong and beautiful, and tradition suggests it brings the owner good luck and success.

I bought this set about 10 years ago in Singapore... It's not vintage but I thought is a good time to showcase it...

Merry Christmas to you and yours...

    Very attractive nativity! Human and angelic figures express reverence, and animals express tenderness and interaction. Have never seen a set like this one. Exciting and fulfilling!!! Merry Christmas!!! : )
