It's Fontanini, an Italian company that makes nativity sets. Several sizes and with many many many different figures.

Well I did a search on Ebay and Google and I found lots of stuff by Fontanini but not one of the donkeys looked like this one. Is this one more rare?

I think you'd have to go to Fontanini collectors to find out that.

I don't know much about the company other than Fontanini has a very distinctive style, which looks to me to be derived from traditional terra cotta or wood creche displays in Italy. I know they've been around about 100 years, so i assume that Fontanini started with composition or terra cotta, and then switched to plastic, but i could have just made that up in my own head.
If i win the lottery (i guess i'd have to buy a ticket first) i swear i'm buying a set of life-sized sheep!

I have seen those Fontanini sets around for many years and they are extremely nice.

I have even seen the HUGE crech sets...very pricey too!

Is your figure plastic or plaster or ?

Thanks for showing Rusty! I've searched and I've found some funny camels, sheep and so. It's a shame that people doesn't make foxes for Nativity sets! Crying or Very sad clown
