The camera is collectable in its own right, so it is not permanently adapted. The silk-covered magnetic floor is edged in brass and can be laid inside the camera’s bellows. On it a scene can be arranged using the 9 carved and painted walnut wood figures. Each figure has a tiny steel screw in the base that will allow it to stay where placed on the magnetic floor. There is also a detailed wooden stable with a brass star to be used as the traditional backdrop. All of the pieces fit snugly into bespoke spaces in a beautiful leather bound book which can also act as a base for the whole Christmas scene.
