Event description: Designer Bob Pesce gives a contemporary interpretation of Victorian holiday splendor in Glenview's parlor, sitting room, library, dining room, and great hall. From Nov. 29 through Jan. 5, 2014, see the floor-to-ceiling tree in the parlor; Coalport porcelain plates and green-engraved Bristol glassware on the dining table; and in the sitting room, the place for casual celebrations, see a table-top tree, the earliest type of fir tree brought to England for indoor display, which delighted Queen Victoria. Victorian toys from the collection -- including a doll, sled, and building blocks -- beloved long before the iPhone or even Barbie, are on display. Nybelwyck Hall, in its special room in Glenview, is also decked out in green and red. This 24-room dollhouse is reminiscent of Hudson Valley manors.
