Item/Description:  Vintage 1994 RETIRED Department 56/Dept. 56 Disney Parks Village Series “Olde (Old) World Antiques II - Liberty Square, Walt Disney World Resort, Florida” hand-painted porcelain building, Model #5351-1, in its original box (NO switched cord or bulb).

This building is an exact replica of the actual shop located on Liberty Square, Walt Disney World Resort, Florida.

This collection was started by Department 56 in 1994, and the entire set was retired in 1996. Pieces were also sold at Disney theme parks.

All of the pieces in this collection were designed with capabilities for lighted display. Although this building no longer retains its original switched cord or bulb, these are easily replaceable.

Because Department 56 no longer has any special marketing arrangements with Disney, the pieces such as this one that were created when Disney and Dept. 56 were together will only continue to increase in value and desirability.

Excerpted Online Research Information about this Collection (attributed to http://www.michaelcarnell.com/disney/dvillage.htm): “A Bit of History - This collection was started by Department 56 in 1994. The original pieces were Mickey's Christmas Carol (2), The Fire Station, The Antique Shops (I and II), The Olde World Gate, Mickey and Minnie, and the Park Family. The Silver Smith's Shop and Tinker Bell's Treasures were introduced in 1996, just as the entire set was retired; thus leading to thier relative scarcity. Department 56 no longer has any marketing arrangements with Disney.

Pieces sold at the Disney theme parks have a special Disney stamp on the bottom. These specially stamped pieces have been known to command higher prices than unstamped pieces.
