While some use the beginning of the holiday shopping season to get into the Christmas spirit, others prefer decoration. These folks typically adorn their homes and offices with trees, lights and figurines.
Department 56 figurines are the centerpiece of these holiday displays, as collectors can use the products to create various eye-catching scenes.
Department 56 Christmas in the City series has been a favorite among collectors and decorating enthusiasts since 1987.
The collection showcases a winter scene in New York City during the 1940s. Best-selling pieces include landmark buildings such as the Flatiron building and the Chinatown gate as well as other city structures such as row houses, firehouses and city shops. In addition, these items are all lighted to create a stunning holiday display.
While many of the structures featured in the series are no longer standing, Department 56 has worked out exclusive partnerships to construct models of many famous buildings of New York City’s skyline, including Yankee Stadium and Rockefeller Center.
The Christmas in the City buildings feature detailed architecture that can be enjoyed by both the young and old for years to come!
