The World's Most Luxurious Dollhouse Goes on Display for the First Time

It's not a Barbie Dream House. Barbie couldn't possibly afford the Astolat Dollhouse Castle. This extraordinary 29-room mansion is fit for a princess--if she can fit inside.

Miniaturist Elaine Diehl and other top artisans from around the world made it with only the finest materials over a 13-year period. It's 9 feet tall and weighs 800 pounds. Inside are rare, one-of-a-kind furnishings, including a library of miniature but readable books and tiny paintings. There's even a tiny bear skin rug, which I will assume is made from a tiny bear which has been hunted, killed, and skinned.*

For the first time ever, the Astolat will go on public display in New York City from November 12 through December 8. The estimated value is $8.5 million, which by Manhattan apartment standards is very affordable.
