Part of the Dickens’ Village Series from Department 56. Victorian England at the time of Charles Dickens was a center of culture for the world, where many traditions we celebrate today took shape. In 1984, Neilan Lund presented the initial drawings for the Dickens’ Village Series to Department 56. To commemorate 25 years of Dickens’ Village the artists at Department 56 designed a fresh new series of buildings based on the original 1984 introductions. These special editions are destined to become classics.
