Nativity Sets & Designs

Perhaps no other piece of holiday decor more perfectly captures the reason for the Christmas season than the Nativity. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a loved one, we invite you to discover the most stunningly designed and exquisitely crafted handmade nativity sets right here at Wendell August Forge.

The Meaning Behind the Holiday

Saint Francis of Assisi created the very first nativity scene in 1223 to honor and memorialize the birth of Jesus. Though it has been reinvented and reinterpreted countless ways since then, the Nativity scene continues to remind us of the real meaning of Christmas.

With our dedication to tradition and our passion to create meaningful keepsakes, it's not surprising that we at Wendell August Forge have made our own renditions of the Nativity in high-quality metal. Besides our artistic Nativity ornament designs, we have forged exquisite, handcrafted, three-dimensional dioramas of the birth of Jesus.

Mini Manger Sets for Christmas

For those who are short on space or simply enjoy miniatures, we present our Miniature Nativity 10-Piece Boxed Set, sculpted by artist Kyle Gercken and cast in pewter. This mini nativity scene in a box makes a wonderful gift for newlyweds or new homeowners, and the wooden box can be personalized to make it extra special.

Another fabulous handmade Nativity set is our Miniature Four-Piece Set, which looks superb on a shelf or small space within a glass cabinet. Our miniature creations also include separate Nativity characters, like our Mini Three-Piece Nativity Animal Set or charming Mini Three-Piece Angel Set.

Family Heirlooms to Treasure

Our larger Nativity 10-Piece Set, the pieces of which range from four to six inches in height, will become a cherished family heirloom to be enjoyed by generations of your family. All the figurines are included, which saves money versus buying figurines separately. We also have a beautiful creche to complete the scene, sold separately. If you choose not to buy the 10-piece set, start with our Nativity Three-Piece Set and have fun adding figurines gradually.  

Our handcrafted Nativity ornaments and Nativity sets make unique and special gifts. They not only impart the essence of Christmas peace, joy and hope to your home, but their elegance reflects undeniable quality rooted in Wendell August Forge's traditional incorporation of centuries-old metalworking techniques.
