Welcome to the official page of the
Astolat Dollhouse Castle
The Astolat Dollhouse Castle is officially appraised at over $8.5 million.
It’s 9 feet tall, weighs over 800 pounds, and filled with 10,000 valuable miniatures.
Astolat recently concluded one of its rare public exhibitions at the Time-Warner Center at Columbus Circle in the heart of New York City in order to raise money and awareness for children’s charities.
The Astolat Dollhouse Castle was designed and built by famed Colorado miniaturist Elaine Diehl between 1974 and 1987 with help from experts and miniature artisans from around the globe. It was modeled and named after the Castle in Tennyson’s Lady of the Shallot. Since completion it has continually been updated and thousands of superb miniatures have been added.
Notable reviewers and publications have said: “Astolat Dollhouse Castle represents an important example of American art, both historically and aesthetically.” “Astolat is one of the finest miniature structures in the world… like nothing in existence today.” “It must be seen to be believed.” “It will leave you absolutely speechless.”
