1937 Vintage 3D Pop-Up Printed Paper and Card Nativity

I've had this lovely Nativity since 1993, when it came to me from the original family who owned was a school prize for music,given in 1937 at St.Mary's Dominicant Convent, Wymberg, Cape Town, South Africa ( where I used to live).
However, I am once again going through all my collections, thinning out in order to make more space, now that my studio is in my tiny home, so today the Nativity has been put onto ebay as I never have room to display it.
I would put a link to my ebay page, but at this stage am not sure how to do it, unless some kind soul can tell me....never mind, here are one or two images....the colours are wonderful, and the printed paper which is attached to the card base is just like those Victorian scraps.
It's actually made in 4 pieces which all slot together, and condidering it's 76 years old, its wonderful that it is still standing and its quite large too at 12" high to the needs to go to a new home where it can be displayed and enjoyed.
