Part of the Dickens' Village Series from Department 56. Victorian England at the time of Charles Dickens was a center of culture for the world, where many traditions we celebrate today took shape.
Part of the "Gaslight Pubs" sub-series. Very unique architecture, a building you just want to keep turning to see all the details on each side. Stone work, crevices, doorways. Upper story has diamond cut windows. Sign says best ales and Porters. Fence post finials and a bit of greenery in the window box complete the unique features. Title from "Our Mutual Friend", Charles Dickens, a fictional pub based on those he frequented and on which real pubs are named today. Fellowship porters were laborers who transported goods by carrying them - fish, fruit, salt, coal.
The Six Jolly Fellowship Porters lit building includes light cord and bulb.
