Kreuter Photographic Advent Calendars from Germany
Something completely different in the way of advent calendars from Germany. These beautiful pieces are all die cut shaped calendars so that the contour of the calendar is the roof line of each building. Add to that the quality of the photgraph that makes them and they become even more interesting. Top it all off with the 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.
I got one as gift years ago and it took me some time to locate the company in Germany that distributes to the US. It was well worth the effort as we don't carry any better advents than these.
Children like them but adults may appreciate them even more ; so don't neglect your childless friends.
