Timeless and historic Dickens can be experienced with this rare vintage lighted house to add to your Christmas delights. The Old Curiosity Shop is a classic lighted village house with the original packaging, sleeve and flyer. Also includes the original electrical light bulb and switch cord.
Measures 9.5"x4.5"x6"
Released in 1987 and retired in 1999. What does retired mean? Each year, certain pieces are selected to be retired from production. Once that decision has been made, the mold is broken. This limits the number of pieces and allows our artists to explore and create new design ideas.
