These tiny treasures, called Putz houses were hand crafted in Japan back in the '50s. Our delightful grouping of three Putz houses feature glass beads on each roof, door and in the front yard. Beaded houses are scarce today and highly collectible.
As Putz houses were collected one by one, each year the Christmas village grew. Display these charming houses on a windowsill, shelf or mantle or nestle them in the branches of your Christmas tree. Just make sure they're in view so the kids can enjoy them as as much as you do! Unleash your creativity and build a miniature village they'll never forget.
