Inspired by the architecture, history, and people of Victorian England, our Dickens Village collection by Department 56 includes the buildings and people needed to create your own Dickensian holiday display. The gorgeously detailed holiday village buildings are all made of porcelain and have been painted by hand with exquisite attention to detail. Snow accents the rooftops of shops, cottages, pubs, and more, and many of these holiday buildings light up or feature an animated or audio aspect that will add a special touch to your holiday display. Be sure to populate your Dickens Village with the matching villagers. Our Dickens Village figurines range from carolers, shopkeepers, children at play, and pub patrons to porcelain Christmas trees and horse-drawn wagons that will add extra authenticity to your display. Based on the most charming details of Victorian society and named after famous author Charles Dickens, our Dickens Village buildings and figures are ready to become part of your own holiday traditions.
