Patience Brewster Nativity Scene Figurines

Updated on February 10, 2017

Introducion and Gift Guide for The Patience Brewster Nativity Set

Starting in the 2015 year Patience Brewster Inc. no longer sells to retailers. She has welcomed into her creativity fold many capable workers to help with all aspects of an established Inc. All her creations are available now at the official website. First and foremost, all your questions can be answered there.

The Patience Brewster Nativity was introduced in 2009. The Shepard, Lamb and Ewe are new for 2011. For 2012 the Shepardess with little Corgi and Collie are now in stores and online.

Each grouping is stamped with her style. The Magi figures are long, pointed and have colorful lines. Gold accent and pastel hues punctuate medieval clothes, with mustaches, beards and turned out footwear. Festive and whimsical. Their conveyances, an elephant, horse and camel, have the same playful motif.

Nativity Assortment Set

The new set is colorful and an easy way to have the whole tableaux. You will see a few changes from past sets, two angels are in this new set. Also included is a table runner to bring the grouping together. You also get the 2012 Shepherdess and 2 dogs, which I did not see in this photo from The best price may be at Amazon.

New for 2014 means a new figure is introduced for the year. The set is actually the same as the first one that came out in 2009. Each year the set gets a little bigger. This set does not include this year's Drummer boy and dog.

Any sets you may find on Amazon, eBay or retailers are past produced sets. Of course, you will be getting her exacting designs and items made with her specs, but keep in mind they are previously bought.

The Holy Family is pretty with color throughout. The manger has straw accents and the Mother and Father, their heads covered with lovely drapes, are kneeling beside. The infant is wrapped in white swaddling clothes. The infant can be placed in the parent's outstretched hands.

Ms. Brewster's figures are Made in the Philippines with care to hand painted details.

The Set Is So Charming

This is charming. A very good way to illustrate the playfulness of the world can offer. The linear style matches the heights of feelings the season brings. This could be a family treasured keepsake collectible. I would like to see very little birds and a rooster and hen. Not a turkey like my Italian set has. Not true to the time period.

There is also a Magi on Animals grouping.

The Homey Cow

Auction for Krinkles and the Nativity Scene

Compare the offerings. I shop ebay and Amazon to get the best price. If you are collecting by individual piece ebay may be your best option.

If you are a very avid collector take note if the model numbers are 08- or 09-. The 08- lead-in number are those products that were produced for Department 56. 09- indicate products from PB new company.

Newly issued musical piping girl with cute kitten. Add it to your collection.

Acquire One Piece at a Time

Would you consider building the set one piece at a time?

The Office and Christmas Nativity

Many situations come up at the office if you are a cubicle worker. A coworker's story was humorous. One year she brought in a chocolate nativity scene. Only after a long time did the baby figure get consumed, he stayed there days, forlorn and alone.

Would you eat the chocolate infant?

No, I could not.

No, I could not.

      Ummm, boy, I love chocolate something fierce but, no, don't think I could do it.

    • Darcie French 4 years ago from Abbotsford, BC

      Well, I'm not supposed to eat chocolate, it's not good for Morkies :)

    • Shelly Sellers 5 years ago from Midwest U.S.A.

      That's tough, but no :)

    • noobeegin 6 years ago

      Probably could not. It just wouldn't seem right. But it would be fun to see other people react and behave around the chocolate scene.

      These answers are funny.

    • WindyWintersHubs 6 years ago from Vancouver Island, BC

      No, I'm afraid someone would see me, lol. Let the disgruntled co-worker take it and eat it. That's actually sad that someone would do that especially without permission.

    • SofiaMann 6 years ago

      I prefer to buy a chocolate bar.

    • Joan4 6 years ago

      No, I don't think I could eat a Nativity Scene at all.

    Yes, I love chocolate anything.

        Sure! That's sanctified chocolate! Extra good.

        did someone say chocolate?

        Yep, and I might even be tempted to call it communion.

          There is something very special about a Nativity Scene for the simplicity of the message it conveys of peace and goodwill to all. What a delightful selection and clearly very collectable! May the Baby Jesus fill your heart and your home with His Love which is boundless and eternal in the coming year. Be Inspired and Be Inspiring

          I would really like to see that Patience Brewster nativity -- the pictures are gorgeous.

          re your chocolate story -- which is funny! - one year we had a tiny little nativity set that the children enjoyed. But alas, we lost the Baby Jesus. We searched and searched. and yes, we found Him on the day I needed Him the most. of course! :)
