The architecture, customs, and history of Victorian England pervade the pieces of the Dickens Village collection by Department 56. We are pleased to offer a wide selection of distinguished and quaint shops, cottages, and other snow-topped buildings with period charm and holiday style. Our Dickens village shops include a tea room, an engraver, a luthier shop, several pubs, a solicitors office, a millinery, and more. Other fun structures range from a theatre to a chapel to a distillery, offering plenty of options to add character to your miniature town. Many of these pieces can be plugged into an electrical outlet to spread a cheery glow throughout your wintry scene, and several offer additional animation or audio features that make them truly amazing collectibles. These illuminated porcelain buildings feature bright colors and intricate detail perfect for any holiday village display.
