From the Halloween Series of Snow Village, frightfully fun and painstakingly detailed. The haunts of this grouping will give you shivers of excitement. A long requested addition to our Halloween series. The pumpkin glows. Note the challenging craftsmanship of the rearing horse and lit head perched on the rider’s hand. Hand-crafted and hand-painted resin figurine.
One Christmas evening, a group of friends set off to enjoy a dinner of celebration at a small country inn nestled in a quiet river town. As they rounded a bend in the road, they saw the small, old-fashioned village decorated for the holidays. The lights, like fairies, glowed and sparkled amid the freshly fallen snow. All evening, the conversation was full of Christmas memories and the visions the tiny town had evoked. Amidst the jovial banter and magical memories, the idea for a lighted Christmas village was born. That spark of an idea became a reality when, in 1976, Department 56 introduced a series of six hand-painted, ceramic buildings. The rest is history.
A friendly faced jack o' lantern is perched atop the Halloween Water Tower and because the tower is 11 inches tall can be seen from everywhere in the village. There are several black bare branch trees and additional jack o' lanterns at the base. The Village landscape accesesories are designed and manufactured exclusively by Department 56.
