Item Description

Over 30 years ago, Department 56 began as part of Bachman's, a premiere retail florist in Minneapolis. Bachman's used a numbering system to identify each of its departments. The number assigned to the gift imports division was, you guessed it, 56. Department 56 has become a leader in the giftware, collectibles and holiday decorating industry and is best known for extensive lines of holiday and home décor products.

This eighteen-piece Christmas Village Scene features five highly decorated homes and shops, an ornate fountain, snow-covered landscape features and festive townsfolk.  This set is part of a 40+ piece collection that was cherished by the donor and his family for years.  

NOTE: The Attleboro Arts Museum will release additional Christmas sets from the overall collection during its 2020 and 2021 auctions.

The donor has graciously agreed to start the bidding at $100
