When it comes to creating your own Christmas village display, adorable specialty shops like the Dukes Wheel Cheese Shoppe are a must-have. This delightfully detailed statue is part of the Dickens Village collection by Department 56. Hand-painted, the warm hues of the building are emphasized by its inner glow - made possible by an included standard light bulb and electrical cord. The doors and windows feature a rich green trim. Cheese wheels litter the front ice boxes, and a sign on the back advertises the varieties of gourmet cheeses the shop has to offer. Perched on the porch of the side door, a cat licks its paws, no doubt a mouser who has just finished its meal. Made of porcelain and zinc alloy, this excellently detailed collectible makes a fine addition to any decorative holiday village.
