This is a somewhat larger building than many in the Dept 56 series and has detail that has to be seen to be appreciated. Individual bricks have multi colors on many of them, often more than one, the paint on the porch is shown as it would look with wear, there are actual shadings painted in, the lettering is absolutely crisp, the barrels weathered, and on and on. It is also painted with a VERY steady hand, I expect they either got their best painters, or gave them extra time to do this piece. If you want a supreme example of this hobby, this is it! The building is dated 1997, retired in 1998, and was a limited edition only available in Canada for that one year.
These pieces are in mint condition, and look like they may have never been used. Is a three story brown brick import export building that has a loose free hanging sign, and the one story warehouse attached to the side. It has a black shingled roof with snow drifts and 2 brick chimneys. Everything is all decorated for Christmas. It also has the light and cord.
When it is lighted, the warm glow adds to the inviting scene. The 2 Village Peddlers are carrying their wares around on the street hoping to sell them to someone for Christmas. The other is carrying a tray marked Spice. These all have a very detailed, beautifully painted very historic design.
You will love them as stand alone pieces, your first acquisitions, or the newest beautiful addition to your Dickensian village. There are only a handful of true stand out Christmas Village stores, and this definitely one of them. This is a retired piece from 1997, and along with the people figures comes with the original box and foam for storage.This can be mixed with other Christmas Village collections. Make sure you check our store for more pieces that you can mix and match.
