This beautifully detailed large advent calendar is a reprint of the painting "Kinderzimmer" (Nursery) by Fritz von Uhde, a German realist/impressionist painter working in the 19th century. The charming scene shows two children playing with dolls, while an older child hones her sewing skills. The window lets in the fresh air and natural light casting shadows on the parquet floor.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
Does Not come with candy or chocolate and does NOT have glitter accents
