Why not add a touch of real Victorian London to your Dickens Village by including the Battersea The Dogs’ Home figurine by Department 56? Made from porcelain, this well-detailed figurine depicts an animal rescue center established in 1860 and heavily supported by Dickens. The tan-colored building has a brick front with a red door at the corner as well as a pair of dark gray doors in front. Next to the double doors is a jail-style grill with a small animal-sized opening behind it.
The building reads Battersea above the second floor and The Dogs Home above the ground floor. There is a dark red sign that hangs out from the second floor which also shows the buildings name. On each side of the sign are windows. There are windows on the back and sides of the building as well as two additional doors. The windows and doors light up with a 120V bulb that uses a power cord. The Battersea The Dogs’ Home figurine makes a great addition to any little Christmas village display or wintry town scene. It also looks fantastic on display by itself. This hand-painted miniature building is made by Department 56.
