Italian Christmas decorations : Fontanini musical lighted nativity glitterdome.

by Cath and Mike

This is an unusual snow globe - you won't find anything like it in the shops.

The Fontanini organisation has been making nativity scenes of all shapes and sizes in Tuscany for many years.

They are renowned for their high quality of workmanship and many become family heirlooms, passed down through the generations.

This dome shows the Holy Family in the glass dome itself and, on the resin base, the rest of the stable scene. It's incredibly detailed - the ox, ass and sheep are all there and a few others have been thrown in for good measure (including a duck!).

This globe lights up (you will need to provide your own batteries) and, when it does, windows in the stable glow gently. It also plays 'Silent Night' when wound up.

Fontanini nativities are a key part of Italian culture at Christmas. If you want to add a part of Italy to your home during the festive season, this is a great way to do it.

Shop safely for this item at Amazon and enjoy free shipping if you spend $25 or more.
