Vintage 1971 Anri Christmas Plate "Christmas in St. Jakob in Groden", hand crafted and hand painted by Anri, Italy. Wooden plate measures 12" (30cm diameter). Serial number is No. 7977. Richly detailed in relief. Framed in choice European hardwoods. With attached wire on back for hanging on the wall. LN condition, no box. The tranquil scene depicts the snow-hushed hamlet of St. Jakob high in the Groeden Valley, in the heart of Italy's Dolomites.

The young musicians render a frolicsome serenade until the bells of nearby St. Anthony ring in the New Year.
