This accessory is has been created in painstaking detail to compliment the previous accessories offered by the NCC. It, also is ideal for display in your village scene.

The “NCC 25th Anniversary Clock” is painted with an exclusive platinum paint, hand chosen for us by Department 56 Creative Director Rick Jackson. The clock face is set at “5 to 6” and has NCC on one side and the dates 1992-2017 on the opposite side. It, too, will be a spectacular addition to any village display
