31st Annual Miniature & Dollhouse Show

November 12, 2006

On Sunday, November 12, 2006 at 2 p.m., the Historical Society opened its ever-popular Annual Miniature and Dollhouse Show. Curated by Delia Tolz, the show ran through January 28, 2007.
This year’s show, entitled Small Wonders, showcases two galleries full of early and contemporary dollhouses, horse drawn carriages, dolls, early airplane models and much more. The show is a delight for both children and adults.
Some of the highlights of that year's show included:
  • A few of Viola R. Koch's creations, including a Country Store filled with unique items, an outdoor fruit and vegetable market, which enticed the visitor to shop,
  • Victoria Losicco's, Stony Point, handmade miniature representation her Chiropractors, Drs. Kahn & Goldman's office.
  • Carolyn Mc Erlean, of Blauvelt, contributed Room Boxes depicting different rooms of a house - all are handmade, constructed from kits and enhanced by furnishings, blankets and rugs.
  • Jessica Sposato, of New City, was inspired by last year's show and contributed her first Walmer Dollhouse. She kept the original staircase and the dowels that held the walls and floors together but completely renovated the four rooms, adding the furnishings.
  • Maurice Sarkissian, of Spring Valley, brought the Old West to life with his Western Wagons. There is a pickle wagon with two teams of Belgian horses, a vegetable picking wagon with a team of Spanish bulls and a lumber hauling wagon.
  • Henry J. Greenberg, of New City, brought to life his depiction of the lost city of Atlantis, which included a joust between mounted knights and a tricerotops, a Costa Rican globe stone, ruins of a Cambodian temple and more.
  • The Doll and Toy Museum, of New York City, contributed a 16th and an 18th Century room boxes and a Dollhouse.
