1995 Three Magi figurine from International Resourcing Services Inc. Collection, representing the Spanish celebration held on January 5th, the eve of Epiphany. In Spain, gifts are believed to be brought to children on this day by these three Magi or 3 Kings, Melchoir, Gaspar, and Balthazar, in a tradition that follows other countries Christmas celebrations with a Santa Claus or Saint Nick figure. This figurine comes with the original box which has a lot of historical information about this Nativity Scene 3 wise men celebration.
This Spain “The Three Magi” wise men figurine measures about 4 1/4 inches in height and about 3 1/4 inches in width across the widest part of the bottom. It is number SC19 in this International Santa Claus series. The label on the bottom of the box shows that this figure was originally from Dillard’s Dept. store. I think it is made of a resin-like material? Previously owned from an estate, this figure is in excellent condition, with the typical factory paint inconsistency here and there. There are a few white spots on the tips of the Kings’ crowns that I believe were done during factory manufacturing when the paint was not evenly distributed (photo). The box has a tiny bit of dust or dirt, but is in good vintage used condition. This product was made in China.
