Unique decorative nativity. Already sold the first one so ordered more. Great price point.

Can be viewed from either side

I display this lovely set on a shelf "divider" between two rooms. It's perfect for this location because, when the figures are lined up to face baby Jesus, they can be viewed from either side.

I also love that the figures are wearing sarongs. I collect international nativities and this is a perfect set to represent Indonesia or Malaysia.

Each year I search websites and catalogs for my holiday nativity. Of all I researched, I selected this beautiful wooden set from Java. Stunning. Beautiful detail. It arrived well-packaged and in a timely manner.

I collect Nativities. This one is my 3rd from SERRV and I have another on backorder. That should tell you all you need to know, lol.

I have been looking for a set like this for many years. I am so glad that I found your website. I will be looking at it often and I could possibly buy another one or two of the beautiful nativity sets as my friends have admired it.

These are such beautiful, hand-carved nativity figures. I have received numerous compliments -- especially on baby and crafted manger. You will be delighted!

Such Fine Quality of Work

My nativity set from Indonesia is lovely. The figures are more carefully designed and made than I expected. I love buying from Serrv knowing that my purchase assists those of little financial means to find work where their skill can be developed. The prices at Serrv are very reasonable and the quality of each purchase that I've received is excellent. I highly recommend using Serrv; I wish there were even more choices of products available.

We love this nativity set. It's lightweight but sturdy. I'm not afraid of my preschooler handling it! I just hope they make pieces to add to it. I would love to expand it.

I received this nativity just in time for Christmas and I was delighted. It is a beautiful wooden set and each piece is beautifully painted in its own design. What a great addition to my huge collection of nativities. Thank you!
