Anri 1978 Christmas plate woodcarving from Italy, The Klockler Singers, eighth in series edition of 6000. Hand crafted hand painted wood plate is No. 1119. Narrative on the back describes the mountain village traditional holiday scene. This lovely Anri wooden framed wall hanging plate measures about 11 3/8 inches across (including frame), and is about 1 1/4 inches in depth.
The back of the plate describes how “In a beautiful old Tyrolean custom, Klockler (knockers) go from house to house, reminiscent of Mary and Joseph… They wish God’s blessings…”. You can see children singers with flickering lantern as they pause in front of Madonna and baby Jesus statue figures in the winter night, with scenic snowy mountains behind.
This vintage Anri Christmas holiday plate is in excellent vintage condition. There is a wire on the back for hanging the plate on the wall.
I do not have the box for this decorative Anri collector plate. I am offering several other Anri plates in this series separately, so please check my other store items to see these.
