Snow Carnival Ice Palace
Department 56

This three piece ceramic Snow Carnival Ice Palace consists of separate lower and upper levels and a detached gate. Two electric light bulbs illuminate the interior of the palace and small removable flags decorate the exterior. This is one of the many models available from The Original Snow Village© by Department 56, Inc., a company based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.  Traditionally, several pieces are retired from the collection each year as newer designs are introduced.
