Customer Question
Hi this question is for...
Hi this question is for Lady Tanya65: I was at an auction a few weeks ago and bid on two Charles Dickens Heritage, A Christmas Carol musical figurines. The first is an Item #9707 by Westland Giftware, Tune "Deck the Halls". I have a certificate with this piece and it states "This is one in a collection of very special pieces that portray the much-loved Cratchit family members in various holiday settings." The musical is made of resin "made in china" and the base is brick with holy draped around and there are 8 figurines in period dress - 4 adults and 4 children. The two figures on the left, one child playing a flute and one man playing the violin - the two adults in the middle are singing from a song book the figure on the right is holding up his top hat and the three figures in front are children singing. If I get notified by Just Answer on my cell phone, I can take a picture from the phone and send it to you.The second item is a musical snow globe same company, same style box "Item No. 9713, tune "White Christmas". The water in the snow globe is murky but the figures of carolers can be identified: Two adults and two children. The base is a village with two people riding in a horse drawn carriage.Can you please tell me the value of these pieces and approximate age. I have looked all over the internet and cannot find these two items. Thank you Lady Tanya!
