  1. Your Nativity set looks to have been made in the 1960's. I do not have information prior to 1966 but the #1372 Nativity set is shown in the Judith Novelty Sales catalogs that I have access to from 1966 through 1968 and possibly before those years. They changed the crib to the straw style that Andrew described above in 1969. Up through 1967 they sold it as an unlighted set, in 1968 they sold it unlighted as #1372 and as "#1373 Same as #1372 with C7 spot light, bulb & wire. UL listed." (Catalog description) The Empire #1372 & #1373 sets are shown as 18" 4 piece Nativity sets. In
  2. I found the auction and have tried contacting the seller. https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Vintage-Blow-MOLD-CRAFT-Style-40-034-CHOIR-Girl-CHRISTMAS-CAROLER-/154208041614?hash=item23e783fa8e%3Ag%3AvF0AAOSw9TRfurCQ&nma=true&si=Uc545D%2FxapXLcegr7XtFqWEyBFo%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  3. Do you possibly know who won the choir girl or who the seller was? If so, could you send the information as we are updating the blow-molded.com website and would love to get front and back pictures of it to add to the unknown section so that possibly someone might be able to identify it. At this time I don't remember seeing one like this before. The body is similar to the 1959 Mold-Craft choir kids but I do not remember seeing any Mold-Craft bodies with that style red bow so I do not think this one was made by them. I do not recall ever seeing a ALFCO choir kid with this style gown or in
  4. I really like your patriotic candles you did a great job on those. It's wonderful to see displays by people who are proud of their country and not afraid to show it. Thank you for serving our country and helping to protect us. Mel
  5. You are very welcome. Mel
  6. I like the red toy soldiers, are they original paint or did you repaint them?
  7. Did you find the answer for your blow molds? The link shows "Page not found" Mel
  8. Yes, the Empire versions have the yellow paint but they used new heads, not the Poloron heads.
  9. The pink gown angel was made by Union Products. Mel
  10. I agree, I had the opportunity to buy two at the time I bought ours and passed on the second one, the only reason I do not regret not buying both is that a friend of ours got the second one. Mel
  11. A few variations in how the angel was sold in the 1960's. Mel
  12. Donna, We do not have the Holiday Innovations Pixie Toy Soldier so I can not compare between the Poloron and HI one but we do have the Holiday Innovations Pixie Santa and he has PTN molded in to him which was the parent company of HI so possibly the HI toy soldier could have the same molded into him. Mel
  13. Original paint we have one in our collection also. Mel
