Vintage Nativities, Christmas Villages and Toy Trains

Almost as popular as the ornaments that adorn the Christmas tree are the charming nativities and villages that are found beneath it!

Nativity figures celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and can be found in a wide variety of styles and materials with themes reflecting their country of origin.

Some of the most popular antique nativities are the German or Pennsylvania Dutch "Putz" figurines , especially the highly collectible wooly putz sheep.

Christmas village scenes have been popular since the mid 20th century. Collector favorites include the mica houses and villages, which are often accompanied by miniature "bottle brush" Christmas trees.

Another collector's favorite, toy train sets - a traditional Christmas favorite of boys, but enjoyed by children (and grown-ups) of all ages!
