Dept. 56 Christmas in the City
With all of its hustle and bustle, the Dept. 56 Christmas in the City series of hand-painted porcelain Village houses and accessories captures the elegance and excitement of the American city. Representing some of the nation's diverse and most striking cityscapes, the unusual shops do a brisk business, restaurants and ballparks are crowded with patrons and street vendors cater to a steady stream of customers. Many Dept. 56 City buildings are historical replicas, such as the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, and the Ed Sullivan Theater from New York. Others are building that would be typical of an early American city. Create your own Christmas in the City Village collection to depict the Christmas traditions most special to you.
Although some Dept. 56 Christmas in the City buildings are from more modern times, the traditional buildings blend well with some of the other Dept. 56 Village series. Both the Dept. 56 Dickens Village and the Dept. 56 New England Village are constructed with a similar scale and finish to the more traditional of the Christmas in the City buildings.
