This is an unusual German light house nativity diorama from the 1930s. It is electrified, rather than using candles, and is constructed of hard paper and wood. The top two tiers are made up of houses on the sides and front, and the bottom tier has more houses on the sides with a creche in the center. Hand painted wooden flat figures make up the nativity scene displayed on a wooden base with a fence encircling the display.
It is especially beautiful at night when light shines through the windows and creche on all levels.
