The Goblins Are Back at Nybelwyck Hall
The 2019 holiday season is underway at Nybelwyck Hall! We are thrilled to partner with Darren T. Scala from D. Thomas Fine Miniatures, of Cold Spring, New York, and his minions of talented artists who have created a selection of seasonal miniatures to decorate this extraordinary dollhouse.
The fall- and Halloween-inspired decor includes a curated assortment of hand-crafted objects which align with the historic style and period of Nybelwyck Hall, and help tell the drama-filled story of the Van Nybelwyck family who resides there.
The exterior of the mansion is adorned with a large, jewel-toned wreath hanging above the front entrance, along with an assortment of petite pumpkins, skeletons, and a candy-filled bowl for visiting trick or treaters. Inside the home you’ll find a number of miniatures as well. In the first floor den is a cabinet of curiosities, made by Scala. It’s filled with inch-scaled treasures like skeleton carvings, an ivory totem, and mini medieval weaponry from his personal collection (artists unknown). A vintage stereoscope, also made by Scala, can be found on the side table beside the wing chair in the first floor living room and features sepia-toned photographs of Victorian witches and goblins.
In the top-floor glass conservatory you’ll find an intricately carved itty-bitty bat mounted onto a board and hanging from a beam created by Kraig Councell, from Newark, Ohio. The smallest basket of gourds you’ll ever see can be found on the kitchen table and was made by 14-year-old Malena Sullivan from the Bronx, New York, also known as The Clay Kitchen. Other themed pieces can be seen throughout the house.
Nybelwyck Hall is decorated for the fall/Halloween season until Sunday, November 17. Be sure to come back and see the house all decked out for Christmas starting on Saturday, November 23 and through Sunday, January 12, 2020.
