“Things that make you happy” - Gifts and Decorative Christmas Magic By Villeroy & Boch
At home with Santa in the North Pole - the imaginative designs in the Toy’s Fantasy series tell stories from the Christmas village, inspired by the worldwide bestseller “The Polar Express” by the American children’s author Chris Van Allsburg. Over the last few years, we have seen Santa, assisted by his wife, preparing presents, harnessing the reindeer and setting out on his journey. This year, the moment has finally arrived: Santa is sliding down the chimney to deliver children’s presents. The beautifully intricate designs in vibrant colours will delight all ages.
The Toy’s Fantasy series now includes new dishes in a style reminiscent of nostalgic paper plates brimming with sweet treats, some bowls, a cake platter and two jumbo mugs with a capacity of over half a litre. The highlight of the collection is a plate with different compartments to serve biscuits and festive snacks, with a decorative hand-painted Santa model in the centre.
The Christmas Toy’s Memory series features intricate, hand-painted figurines as well as fascinating light and music effects. The highlights for 2019 are three large Santa figurines, some with a rotating feature, music and tea light holder. A three-dimensional Advent calendar in the shape of a Christmas tree decorated with 24 ornaments, supplied in a high-quality wooden box, is another stylish and classy feature for the festive period. The Christmas Toys series includes new gift boxes, both round and square, and various light objects to guide Santa on his way.
You can find magnificent decoration for Christmas trees in the Nostalgic Ornaments series, featuring new Christmas themes such as little teddy bears or presents. The new decorative Christmas tree bells in the My Christmas Tree series also evoke memories of days gone by with charming Santa, snowman and teddy designs.
Advent coffee and biscuit heaven: Winter Bakery Delight
Father Christmas is coming for coffee: the Winter Bakery Delight collection made from Premium Porcelain is perfect for the baking trend theme. All items make original gifts when invited for Advent coffee. Biscuit plates shaped like a star or Christmas tree, oven-safe mugs and biscuit jars provide a lot of pre-Christmas excitement. New in 2019 are a bowl, plate, baking cup and two jars, inspired by traditional baking moulds with gingerbread motifs. There is also a new gingerbread village consisting of houses, a railway station, Christmas trees, snowmen and sleighs for matching decoration.
Year after year: Annual Christmas Edition
Unique collectibles for Christmas fans: the limited Annual Christmas Edition 2019 is ideal for collecting and also makes a perfect gift. Available only in the edition year, it features charming and nostalgic Christmas themes. This year, Santa is climbing out of the chimney and filling the stockings hanging by the fireplace with presents. The annual plate, mug, bowl, Christmas ball and bell are identified by a gold stamp on the base. These very high-quality presents are supplied in attractive gift packaging.
