NYPA Presents Annual
Porcelain Doll Show at Lansing Manor
May 31, 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NORTH BLENHEIM—The New York Power Authority’s
(NYPA) historic Lansing Manor will host a world-class porcelain doll
show beginning June 1 through June 30. This exhibit includes porcelain
dolls from such prominent companies as Ashton-Drake, Paradise Gallery
and the Franklin Mint, and features some of the most exquisite and
life-like dolls in the world.
These porcelain treasures were designed and crafted
by some of the world’s finest doll artists and many are valued at
several hundred dollars. The display ranges from the traditional
porcelain babies to more elaborate fancy ladies and can be admired by
all ages for their detailed artistry. This year’s show reprises many of
the favorites from last year’s presentation.
The impression of the dolls is one of timelessness
and beauty, which produces a strong sense of nostalgia that nicely
compliments the historic décor of Lansing Manor.
Lansing Manor, at NYPA’s Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped
Storage Power Project Visitors Center, is open Wednesday thru Monday
from 10am to 5pm with free admission which includes the porcelain doll
show. The site is located on Route 30, 17 miles south of Middleburgh,
and about 50 minutes from Albany.
