Handmade Tin Box Nativity Decoration

£28.00

Handmade Tin Decorations made in Oaxaca, Mexico by husband and wife team, Christino and Aida.  Everyone in the family is involved, sons, daughters, cousins.  We love the work this family produces.  An age old craft known known as Hojalata, which dates back to the 16th Century. Tin art is produced when pieces of tin are cut, shaped, and embossed with a pattern and then sometimes painted.

This wonderful Tin Box containing the figures from the  Nativity is both quirky and incredibly sweet measures approximate 7cm H x 10cm W x 4cm D

Each product is handmade so it may differ from the image, there are a few different designs of box including the Star shown, a bell, shooting star, flowers....please specify if you have a preference and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements, but we think they are all wonderful.
