    I fear I do not know much about this but my grandparents had this for many years. I ended up with this when my grandmother moved into a retirement home. It was a very nice retirement home although the neighborhood is a bit rough. Very historic though.
    I don't recall if they used the box for the manger but I have been for the last 25 years or so. It is a Hershey's chocolates box from the long long ago. May seem a bit tacky but my grandparents were a bit zen aka thrifty.

      Nothing wrong with being thrifty and just as humble as the original nativity :)
