M&S Decorations: Light Up Forest Scene In A Bell Jar

This Light Up Forest Scene In A Bell Jar is currently £25 and on the 3 for 2 decorations offer at Marks and Spencer. It would make a great winter table decoration as it features a tree surrounded and sat on by lots of woodland animals. A squirrel, bird and owl sit in the trees' branches whilst a deer, with a squirrel sat on it's bottom, and fox stand next to the tree itself. The pin wire lights that are intertwined in the tree add a warm gentle glow to the scene. The bell jar is glass and cannot be removed from the base.

The lights are powered by 3xAAA batteries which come with the jar.  The switch is on the bottom so the switch is very discrete.  It doesn't come with a box so make sure the customer service assistant wraps it carefully as although it isn't fragile, the jar would probably crack if dropped. It measures 13cm(h) 13cm(depth) and 13 cm (width).

This is a different type of Christmas decoration.  It isn't glittery, sparkly or colourful blown glass.  It is understated and elegant, it looks like there is another world looking out from under that glass jar.  I think it is a winter rather than just a Christmas decoration and it won't be packed away in January but will stay on the table until Spring.

I purchased this item myself.  It is available online and in store.
