Department 56 Antiquarian Bookseller The Dickens Village Series 56.58508 Light. The sign that belongs on this house is broken and not connected to the building. Step back in time to the cobblestone streets, gas street lamps, and horse-drawn carriages of our 19th century Dickens' Village series.
Revel in the bustling, hearty and joyous atmosphere found in the holiday season of Victorian England. This series, introduced in 1984, has many pieces inspired by best-loved Dickens' novels, like Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and A Christmas Carol.
With old- world churches, quaint shops, cozy cottages, rustic schools, and more, the series portrays London and the surrounding countryside as it was during Dickens' lifetime. Detailed accessory pieces recreate the fervor of the busy streets. Sip a cup of hot tea and let the magic of our Dickens' Village enchant you. Characterized by the matte finish, extensive research contributes to the charm and detail of each individually hand painted, porcelain piece.
Cast into the mold is the Department 56 logo-- a guarantee of authenticity. Every year pieces are retired from production and the molds broken. This limits the number of pieces and allows for new additions. Department 56 began in 1976 with the introduction of six hand-painted lighted ceramic buildings... The first pieces of The Original Snow Village.
