This crèche is my first scissors project: my grandmother bought it for me in Woolworth’s. The illustrator is Helen Sewell, ©1948. Very ’40s! (And, to the right of the crèche, a card from Pat Persaud in the 1970s).
The “Nancy” stocking (at right) was made for me by my grandma Hoffmann.
(I have no idea what the chicken represents!)
