    How old is a 19 inch owl with ears and a pine tree at its base.. I believe it was bought around the early 80’s. It is very beautiful and has a round metal piece on the bottom of it with ARNI written on it. I would like to know who carved it. Thank you for your time..G Katstra

    I bought a Nativity set in 1965. This set is all wood carved and the figures are all attached. There is a large tree on the outside of the stable. There is also a music box with three angels that turn around. There is also a light on the inside.
    Can you tell me how much this might be worth.

    We started collecting pieces from the Juan Ferrandiz miniature nativity set in 1985. We are looking for the 1.5″ Standing King to add to our set. Any suggestions where we might find this one piece?

    Thank you

    Hoping you can help. Is there anyway to date these pieces. They have been in the family for years and I always thought they were amazing it wasn’t till this year I actually googled them to find out about them. That led me here.

    It includes the manger and 17 pieces (baby jesus, mary, joseph, 3 kings, guessing innkeeper, another male admirer, man holding baby sheep and three other sheep, man playing reed pipes, young boy on his knees, cow, donkey and angel on the manger.
    It is a least 40 years old and probably no older than 55 (unless my parents bought it used which is possible). the pieces are in great shape (was going to say immaculate but that didn’t seem material appropriate).
    Is there a way to get info on date carved and who carved them? Also while they are not for sale, curiosity has me wondering an approximate price for the set. Some online looking has prices all over the place. Thanks

    PS. I did post pics on the Facebook site.

    I have an ANRI FERRANDIZ figurine with an “M/” edition number on the bottom as the numbering. What does the “M” represent; an artist proof or prototype?
    I need to go dig up some of my old ANRI club newsletters for the answer.
    Thank you for your time, look forward to your response.

    I posted a photo of an 18th century style lady figurine on your Facebook page about a week ago, but haven´t had any replies. Hoping for some information as I can´t find anything similar on the Anri sites. No Anri label on this one , but it looks like there are the remainders of a stamp and a sticker with the number 16082, could this be the series no. ? I have since acquired 3 more, equally nobly dressed, but the period seems to be slightly different with each one. Again no Anri stickers on these (unfortunately that was on the 1 that had already been sold), but 1 has the no. 16080.
    Thank you for any help you can give.
    Lily.

    I have several ANRI Ferradiz pieces that have a black signature on the bottom – it looks like it might say “georg mall…something” Do you know who this is? Is it the carver? Thank you! Robyn

    I have a set of three ANRI angels – Two are Heavenly Angels (Caritas, 119/250 and Felicitas, 236/250) and the other is and artist proof (Pax). Can you tell me where I can get a value and/or sell these?

    • Hi Kristie, I apologize but we do not have values for ANRI on the secondary market. You could try listing it on web auction sites, but ANRI is a niche market and finding the matching buyer is often luck. With eBay you would reach the most people.

  10. Albert says:

    I inherited these pieces and wondered if you could tell me their origin?

  11. Dennis H Headington says:

    I have one of your beautiful UNIVERSUM Space Ace Chess Set packaged in the hard cardboard package. I am interested in finding one of your wooden cases that you sold some of your sets in.

    Are there any available and if so, what do they cost?

    If not available, would it be possible to make one and if so at what cost?

    Thanking you in advance for whatever information you can provide me.

    Hi,
    My mother purchased the 10 inch Bernardi nativity set back in the mid 1970s. This set was a “clothed” version meaning the figurines were wood carved bodies and the clothing was real not carved wood. Would this make the set more valuable or less valuable? or more or less rare? Thanks !

  13. C. P. Curry says:

    Can you please provide a distributor(s) in Houston, TX USA that handles the nativity figurines.
    Thank you,

    Hello
    I purchased a statue recently with Anri carved on the side. The box states it is “Our Lady of Humility” but I have looked everywhere and cannot find a value. Can you provide a little history on the piece like when it was first put out because the box looks older. There is a number on the box P1076, can you tell me if that means anything and the age of the piece.
    Thank you
    Dolores

    I was given a wood carving by Anri. It is a man offering flowers to a woman and in the background is a well pump. I was told it is the poor poet but I’m not sure. I was given this beautiful carving 41 years ago. I’m also wondering how much it is worth.
    I appreciate any information.
    Thank You,
    Georgia Armour
