WILLIAMSBURG, Va.-The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has reached a license agreement with Enesco for a line of gifts and decor products for home and garden.

Under the terms of the agreement, Enesco will manufacture Williamsburg products co-branded with Department 56 and folk artist Jim Shore, two of Enesco's labels. The Williamsburg collection by Department 56 will consist of figures that will be replicas of original, 18th century buildings in Colonial Williamsburg's historic area. The holiday and everyday decor items to be launched by Jim Shore will include an angel, Santa, Noah's Ark and an 18th century milliner.

The collections will debut at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, which is scheduled for June 23-29; and at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, scheduled for July 14-July 21.
