Italian creches or nativities have a centuries old tradition. In the ornament world, no one creates a more beautiful and reverent scene than the De Carlini family from Macherio, Italy near Milan.
Like a snow globe, this ornament contains a scene. The gold base is a twisted teardrop with incised diagonal lines. The clear glass globe is ornamented with simple white glittered snowflakes and dots. Inside, the Holy Family rests on the glittered white base depicting the birth of the Christ Child, Baby Jesus.
