Christmas is not quite the same without a bit of Charles Dickens. This hand-painted ceramic model Scrooge house is therefore a great gift idea for the festive season. Part of a series by Department 56, the “A Christmas Carol” village series brings the magical tales of Dickens to life. The house of Ebenezer Scrooge, complete with ghosts, will compliment a Christmas decorated interior for people who adore the styles, literature and history of Victorian England.
The miniature house is wonderfully detailed and draws in the viewer with its intricate designs. Three ghosts appear in the windows together with the miserly Mr Scrooge as well as there being an apparition displayed on the front door. Snow decoration covers the ground and rooves, thereby adding to the cold and wintry ambiance. However, this is contrasted beautifully with the interior illumination which lights up the windows.
The realistically detailed model has been painstakingly hand-painted and this can be seen in the superb rendering of the wood and stone exterior. Its size means it can be located on a table or shelf together with matching ceramic pieces or as a stand-alone feature. Combined with Christmas decoration and other Victorian decor styles, this ceramic Ebenezer Scrooge model house will be a stunning addition to any room.
