A Time Remembered

Circa: 1988
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Departmant 56/Made in Taiwan
This wonderful hand painted porcelain set, Fezziwegs & Friends #5928-5, was made in Taiwan for Dept.56, Dickens Village, in 1988 and retired in 1990.
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.
Now headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Department 56 has become a leader in the giftware, collectibles and holiday decorating industry and is best known for our hand-crafted lighted villages, Snowbabie figurines and extensive lines of holiday and home decorative products.
In very good + condition, in the original box that is marked: Heritage Village Collection, the 3 piece set includes old Fezziweg and wife with friends carrying food to needy neighbors for the Holidays and they measure 2 inches to 2 1/4 inches tall.
An addition to any Department 56 Village Collection.
