Kaye Shipp’s delightful elf.
Become filled with wonder this holiday season as you take a trip through Christmases past at the KSB Miniatures Collection. Strolling through the gallery is nostalgically reminiscent of those elaborately decorated Christmas window displays we gazed into as children with tiny toy soldiers, magical reindeer, Old World Santas and other enchanting holiday vignettes — all in 1/12 scale.
The exterior of the Gingerbread Kitchen.
See elves preparing bite-size gingerbread houses, fully lit Christmas trees that fit in the palm of your hand, and the smallest working toys you have ever seen. History buffs will be delighted at the historically accurate re-creations of 18th century Christmases — from celebrations inside an elegant English mansion to a holiday meal inside a famous Russian castle. All the structures are intricately adorned offering seasonal surprises at every turn.
Just one of the fully decorated rooms in Spencer House.
The Nativity scene in 1/12 scale draws guests from around the world and this year, visitors will also be treated to a special exhibition of Catherine Palace, on display for the first time since 2016 and completely decorated for the holidays.
Holiday exhibits run Nov. 1 thru Jan. 20, 2018.
