From a local estate sale here is a vintage 1947 Miller Chalkware Nativity scene. This set consists of 17 items.Most of these are marked "Miller 1947" (please see photos). As a point of reference the tallest item (the camel) measures approximately 5" tall. The smallest (one of the sheep) measures approximately 1.25" tall. There are some of them that have some small nicks and some of their original paint missing. Inspite of a few imperfections, these are still very beautiful. Whoever did the painting on these did a great job! The set has Mary & Joseph, 2 Angels, 3 Wise Men, the Magi, a camel, 6 lambs and 1 dog. Baby Jesus is missing. The cradle is made of some type of paper that has been painted over. We have provided a photo of the cradle. If you have questions about these items, we will answer them as quickly as possible. Please ask before you bid. Important note about shipping: We recognize that shipping costs are high. As of 4/19/2011, EBAY is now charging Sellers 9% of the shipping costs to send your item. This is in addition to the price increases from USPS and UPS, fuel surcharges, etc. If you haven't purchased for awhile or don't ship on a regular basis, you may not be aware of these changes. We are not able to absorb all of these additional fees so we must pass a percentage of these costs on to the Buyer. PAYMENT: Payment is due no later than 3 days after auction closes. PayPal is the preferred payment method. We only sell to confirmed addresses in the United States. SHIPPING: Check the shipping options. We usually try to offer a couple of options (least expensive / fastest time) where it makes sense. We will try to combine shipping if you purchase more than one item. Please contact me BEFORE you pay so that we can calculate your combined item shipping cost to save you $$$$$! We try to ship fast and will ship in 2-3 business days after receiving cleared payment. RETURN POLICY / TERMS OF SALE: You must contact us FIRST prior to returning item so that we can provide you the best service options!!!! We will accept returns as long as the item is returned in the same condition as shipped. Buyer pays return shipping costs. Please ask questions and review the picture(s) to avoid misunderstandings before you bid. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION: This is very important to us as we want you to be happy with your purchase! PLEASE contact us if something was missed as we will make the situation right. We want every transaction to be hassle-free and enjoyable for all of us.
