Set of five Christmas baubles in blown glass. This design from “Le Palle Presepe” collection combines two great traditions, the nativity scene and the decoration of the Christmas tree, producing a small but significant innovation. The nativity scene, made out of the Christmas Baubles that represent characters of the Christmas scene, can in effect create a new tree design, but can also end up in any other corner of the house. They are hand painted on an internally mirrored glass base to give the decoration an effect of luminosity and depth.
