Love of holiday traditions sparked the original idea for the Heritage Village Collection. When decorating our homes, we are often drawn to objects reminiscent of an earlier time, when the spirit of Christmas rang loud and true. Heritage Village began with the introduction of Dickens’ Village which continues to be one of our most beloved brands within Department 56 Village. Our current collection of Heritage Village pieces include the Village Friends Town Tree and Village Friends Cocoa Car. Both pieces have a matte finish which complement all the Heritage Village brands including Dickens’ Village, Alpine Village, New England Village and Christmas In The City.
