Christmas Gate with Wreath

Posted by Moby on Sunday, March 16th, 2008 at 10:47 am in Miniature Doors | Comment

I bought this Christmas gate from EvilMart a few years ago. This was before my wife banned the store from our lives. It has no markings on it other than a Made in China sticker on the bottom. The package logo said Holiday Time and was from the 2004 Village Collectibles and called a Polyresin Christmas Gate.

I bought these two Enchanted Fairy Doors in 2007. They are dated 2006 and are made by Don Mechanic Enterprises. The dimensions are 10″H x 5.5″L x 2.5″W.

Fairies have always been around us. Recently they have ventured out of the forest looking for new places to live. By placing an Enchanted Fairy Door in your home or garden you will invite the magical creatures into your home where they are sure to bring good luck!

Pirates of the Caribbean Hallmark Keepsake

Posted by Moby on Sunday, February 24th, 2008 at 12:28 pm in Miniature Doors | Comment

This was a gift from my mother and sister for Christmas 2006. It’s a Hallmark Keepsake Christmas ornament (#QXD6376). It depicts a scene from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl where Captain Jack Sparrow is being held in a jail cell. Pressing the button on the front of the ornament plays the music to “A Pirate’s Life for Me.” Here’s the text from the box:

As the Black Pearl descends upon Port Royal, its cannon fire blasts through a wall of the prison where condemned pirate Captain Jack Sparrow is held. Unfortunately, the hole does not extend far enough into Jack’s cell to allow his escape. The other prisoners lament Jack’s lack of luck as they flee. Desperate, Jack attempts to lure the four-legged jailer who holds the keys to his freedom. Will Jack manage to escape, or will he face the gallows in the morning and be hanged as a pirate? Well, Jack has escaped from desperate circumstances before, and he is, after all, Captain Jack Sparrow …

Harvard – Dexter Gate

Posted by Moby on Thursday, December 27th, 2007 at 1:59 pm in Miniature Doors | 1 Comment

This was a 2007 birthday gift from my wife. It’s from one of my favorite architectural model makers Timothy Richards.

Dexter Gate is a familiar landmark to all Harvard graduates. On the face of its lintel is carved “enter to grow in wisdom” and on the reverse, “depart to serve mankind”. Harvard commissioned this bookend to commemorate the centenary of this landmark. Harvard University was established in 1636 and is one of America’s earliest educational institutions after being set up by the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
