These vintage creche figures, made in Italy in the 1950's, are of a young shepherdess and shepherd, each with a white sheep. The 4" kneeling young girl is hugging her sheep by her side. Her blue eyes look downward (at the Baby Jesus, when placed in the creche scene). She is dressed in peasant clothing with a patched apron. The 5.25" young shepherd stands beside her, his sheep on his shoulders. He is dressed in bright blue pants, red shirt and fur vest and has bare feet. He, too, looks downward. Both are marked "Italy" and 29 cents under their bases. Both are beautifully detailed. In very good condition.
