Welcome to The Original Snow Village from Department 56 - Built with the same traditions and values found in small towns across America.
Santa stops to check the image of himself show on the larger than life roadside billboard.
Here's the details:
Over sized roadside billboard featuring vintage advertising art. Sign is 5.5" x 3", compared to typical billboards of 4" x 2.5". 3" Santa figure is a 3-D sculpt of Coca-Cola Santa, holding a bottle of Coke! Sign shows Santa carefully painting a vintage pull toy rabbit. Notice how he keeps his paintbrush handy by tucking it behind his ear.
Did you know?
Through advertisements in the 1930's and 1940's, it was the Coca Cola Company that made famous the Santa Claus we recognize today. Dressed in Coca Cola red suit trimmed in white fur, the now iconic jolly happy elf brings an instant smile to young and old alike.
