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.
