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.
First time ever that we've depicted the Queen in her famous black attire. In March of 1870, three months before he died, Dickens was received by the Queen at Buckingham palace where she presented him a copy of her Journals written at Balmoral. Our porcelain piece depicts their historic exchange.
