Unity cup Woven mat Basket of fruit Kinara candleholder 7 pretend candles 2 ears of corn Mini Kwanzaa book $20 GCAZ discontinued 1999
This set is beautifully made. The ears of corn and pieces of fruit are heavy, smooth, and very detailed. The corn kernels are 3 dimensional on the cob, the husks are also rigid and fan away from the ear of corn in waves. There are 2 ears of corn, an apple, a pear, and a peach. I have extra ears of corn and a duplicate set of fruit in the pics. The book is a practical guide to celebrating Kwanzaa at home with information about ritual and history. The mat and basket are made of natural fiber. The cup is made of a composite plastic and is my least favorite part of the set. The kinara- oh joy! It is wooden composed of a base and candle holder; it is a finished piece with smooth surfaces and nicely connected seams. The candles are hard, not the squishy texture of many AG candles. This set is Pleasant Company at its' finest detailed incarnation. A plus from me!

I have an incomplete set but for the price I paid, I'm not complaining. I have two ears of corn, apple, pear, peach, woven mat, and mini Kwanzaa book. I am in love with this accessory set. The details are great. The Kwanzaa book is an actual book and can be read. The fruit is detailed and has weight to it. I may try and make a kinara next year for Kwanzaa but I'm satisfied with my display as is. I added some beans to the mat for fun. Pic below.
