Are you familiar with putz houses? Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia
“A Christmas village (or putz) is a decorative, miniature-scale village often set up during the Christmas season. These villages are rooted in the elaborate Christmas traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Mass-produced cardboard Christmas villages became popular in the United States during the early and mid-20th century, while porcelain versions (especially those created by the company Department 56) became popular in the later part of the century.”
I don’t think I’ve ever heard them called a “Putz” but now that I have – I like them even more.
Here’s a great selection of vintage putz for ya’.
A whole village from Seaside Rose Creations, $48.
