Open November 5, 2008 – February 22, 2009

On a Smaller Scale features the recent acquisition of three exceptional dollhouses from the now closed Delaware Toy and Miniature Museum (DTMM), created by Dover resident, Barbara Merrell. These homes were commended by DTMM for their high degree of naturalistic detail within the incredibly small scale of one-half inch to one foot. Ms. Merrell’s homes are half the size of the industry standard for most doll houses at one inch to a foot but Ms. Merrell’s works are literally half the size. In addition, nearly every object furnishing these mini homes: the furniture, the textiles, the household items, were all made from Ms. Merrell’s hands.
