This rare & hard-to-find waterglobe was issued in 2000 as the first waterglobe in the Kringle's Village Series that is part of Boyds Town.
It features a winter cottage in snow, with candy canes and trees surrounding the cottage.  A small bear is peeking out from behind a tree.
On the large base, an elf bear is sliding down a hill towards the mail box.  On the back, an elf bear is making a snowman.  There are trees and holly accenting the snow on the base.  
The snow has a glittered finish.

The waterglobe is in perfect condition, except for one problem.   There is a bubble that measures about 2 inches on the top.   Water is not leaking out of it;  it came with a bubble.  Because of the size of the glass globe portion, it is difficult to fill it with water and then secure the seal. 

Many of Boyds large waterglobes will have bubbles in the top.

This is a large & heavy waterglobe; it measures 6.5 inches high.   The base diameter is 5-3/4 inches.
The bottom shows the hand numbered edition ... this one is a first edition (1E).
There is a compartment on the bottom where you can put 2 AA batteries and when turned on, a light shows thru the windows of the cottage.  Batteries are not included.
The waterglobe is also a musical, and it plays "Winter Wonderland".
