I did some work for a gentleman who didn't have any money but had alot of stuff. He let me select some items for payment. I came across 3 boxes apprx. 30" x 48" x 18". On the outside was a picture of a complete nativity, on all 3 boxes. I told him I would take these 3 boxes, which he agreed, for I thought I had a bunch of small nativities that I could possibly sell off or give away. When I eventually opened the boxes 4 months later, to my surpise was a 9 piece 30" tall full nativity. I about passed out. I can't seem to find it's value, for insurance reasons, but I would like to know if anybody has one of these. I believe it's from Sam's, but I wasn't going back to the gentleman to ask anymore questions.
Thanks
Mark

I can't tell the scale from the photo but it looks beautiful! And the detail is great. Get the value for insurance if you need to, but I would not sell it; it is great!

I don't want to sell it, but if it walks off, I want to be able to have a value for the insurance company. The fence in the back is 6' and the king on the left and the angel in the back are 30" tall. I've got 2 - 500watt halogen lights on a motion sensor so if anybody gets too close after hours it will make them think twice. We have a huge problem with stealing Jesus's in this town.

That is a beautiful set! Unfortunately, I don't know anything about it or how much it's worth.

Suggestion:

A few years ago, my Nativity got vandalized. The next year I built a platform on my roof and put the whole thing on the peak of my roof in the front. It allowed the Natvity to be the center of the display but very untouchable. It was easy to do and just cost a sheet of plywood and some 2 x 2's Just a suggestion.

Ok so you got these beautifull 30" peices 2.5 ft basically WOW!! I would build a rollout navitity that can be rolled into the garage at night. the barn would be heavy enough to avoid any theft because no 2 people can pick it up.

That is beautiful, I am surprised that you would expose it to weather let alone the Jesus bandits.

It seems that stealing baby Jesus is typical around most parts of the country, blows me away. In my small hometown in central Utah they used to have a beautiful nativity in the city park every year and after several years of Baby Jesus thieves they put up a chain link fence around the display. Kind of lost the feeling. They eventually discontinued the display altogether at the advice of the city attorney for fear of getting sued.

It's CHRISTMAS folks, get over it.

I am pretty sure you are correct -- Members Mark is from Sam's Club. That is an incredible set you have! Back pre-2004 or so, Sam's Club used to sell a lot of Christmas figurines under the "Grandeur Noel" brand -- many, many porcelain sets. My mom has several of the smaller porcelain sets she received as gifts. But I have never, ever seen a nativity set that large from the Sam's Club collections! Each of the smaller porcelain sets sold for about $50-60, and the figurines were no more than 12-13" tall.

If you do an ebay or Google search for "grandeur noel" you will find several of the old collections for sale, some going for over $100-200 (when they originally sold for about $50)
