Can ANYONE help me identify the maker of this thing?
All I know is this:
-it’s from the late 1940s-early 1950s
-it’s the only survivor of a set of 6
-there’s no manufacturer name or mark anywhere on it
-best way I can describe it is it’s a reverse diorama: the back of the ornament is concave, and the nativity scene is a small cutout pasted onto the convex side, inside the hollow glass part
Wanting to signal boost this.I know of some friends or friends of friends who live in Michigan and that is where the ornament is from so they may know a bit more.

Anyone up to chatting some this evening? I’m on skype at this moment.
Since a friend mentioned maple syrup. It reminds me of a gift basket a client gave us this time of year in the past. What was one of the things in it was “maple syrup candy” where it is exactly what it says it is.
Sometimes I’m confused by Canadian stereotypes but then I realize that we literally dump maple syrup onto the snow, wait for it to get gooey and then scoop it up with a stick and eat it
you better not be fucking with me canada is this for real
it is all too real
#G what the fuck is your problem#my god that’s disgusting
D: Don’t knock it til you try it. I’ve actually had that before back when I was super young. On that note I haven’t had it since as its not really a common practice, its more a tradition from the old days most people teach their kids. For fuck sakes real maple syrup isn’t even easy to get here anymore, its mostly manufactured fake shit.
Oh. Well then it’s much less disgusting since it isn’t happening all the time, haha. But the practice itself is still pretty gnarly if you’re putting it on fallen snow :I
yeah, these days from what I gather for hygiene.. and the fact due to global warning snowfall is unpredictable a lot of people use fake snow (ie: snow made with a machine or some sort) with maple syrup instead of actual snowfall snow.
G, in terms of the hygiene aspect I would be more comfortable doing this now than in the past. Mainly due to the emissions of particulate matter are a lot lower now than in the past due to cleaner technology. People forget about the “good old days” and how polluted they were.
