The famous doll house, now on a
tour of the country, is constructed of
aluminum and copper, with fantastic
angles and turrets.
Weighs 6,000 Pounds.
Resting on the summit of a rugged
precipice, the castle, which is 9 feet
high end 9 feet long, rises 14 feet and
weighs approximately 6,000 pounds.

more than 200.000 individual pieces,

perches on a lavender glass tree in
the Garden of Aladdin and sings full
thoated, joyful tunes.
