Marcel Carbonel


The man and his work
The story of Christmas crib figures Marcel Carbonel is connected to the history of the Christmas crib figure of Provence, <strong>born in Marseilles</strong>. It is in this city where Marcel Carbonel marked his time by developing the Christmas crib figure, by bringing a style unanimously recognized, by privileging the respect for the detail, by adorning it with delicate and lively colors. Marcel Carbonel had a sure influence on the world to santonnier. He trained and inspired widely this craft environment. The family company of Christmas crib figures Marcel Carbonel, strong of his four generations of santonniers, prolongs this work begun in 1935.
