Dave and Colette Frankowski share their British-themed Victorian Christmas display of hundreds of miniature hand-painted metal figures along with buildings, train and scenery. Intricate and detailed, the scene is straight out of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol!
As a period train chugs merrily around the perimeter of the town, soldiers guard Buckingham Place, skaters glide across a frozen pond, a one-horse open sleigh swooshes past, a boy hawks newspapers, men tip their hats to blushing ladies and patrons gather before pubs and shops. In other displays, enlisted men eat plum pudding on benches against a backdrop of flags, a wreath and a picture of Queen Victoria; while British officers dine on turkey at a banquet table holding candelabra with suited waiters serving them. Elegant gentlemen and ladies dance at a Christmas Ball.
Enjoy holiday refreshments while viewing this whimsical display!
