Advent Calendars-Victorian Theme and Photographic Die Cut
These beautiful advent calendars are imported from Germany. Our Victorian themed pieces are of contemporary design but with a wonderful look back to that period using figures and costumes from the past.

Our photographic advents are all die cut shaped calendars so that the contour of the calendar is the roof line of each building. The quality of the photographs used to make them is very good. Add to that their large size ( most being 21 inches high ) and the great content of the individual images used behind the 24 little doors of the calendar itself and you have a remarkable piece of art.
Westminster Abbey leads the list of my English themed favorite.

PLEASE NOTE: The Kreuter Photographic calendars normally ship by USPS priority mail.
All calendars are shipped in heavy reinforced mailers to arrive safely.
