Bettina Franke Nativity Scene - 9 Figures with Arch
In its sixth generation of creating beautiful hand carved figures, the artisans of Bettina Franke have developed a unique “hewn” look to their figures.
New for 2017 - I love the Bettina Franke Nativities so much I had to bring another one into the shop! This one is a little bigger than the other Franke Nativities. The detail especially on each of the 3 Kings is quite remarkable. Each hat or crown and each gift is hand carved and hand painted - not something we see every day. This Nativity is a true treasure and worthy of a collection.
Hand carved in solid wood with translucent paints.
Given that these pieces are hand carved each Nativity will look a little different
Arch is 15 cm/6" tall and 22 cm/8.75" wide
Tallest figure is 10 cm/4.75" tall

Christmas items arrive in our warehouse from Germany at the end of October. This is because many of our items are perishable and we want to ensure everything is as fresh as possible. Many of our handcrafted items come from small workshops that sometimes get overwhelmed with orders and ship to Canada in the Fall.
Orders are packed and shipped in the order they were received by Gingerbread World. So if you placed your order in September it will be shipped before orders placed in October. You will receive a Shipping Confirmation when your Order has shipped.
Gingerbread World holds orders until all items in the order are available to ship at one time. Packages begin to be shipped to our customers by November 6.
So why should you buy and pay for something now in our online shop if it will only be shipped in November? By buying online early you are guaranteed to receive the item(s) you want. Gingerbread World is not able to re-stock items before Christmas and we only get one shipment of Christmas stock in the Fall. The last two years we have sold out of Lebkuchen Schmidt by December 2.
