Ellis said “Downton Abbey” was always one of his favorite shows and that when “Gilded Age” called about the sale, he was ecstatic.

“When I realized it was being created by Julian Fellowes, the creator of ‘Downton Abbey,’ I was so excited.”

The dollhouse is more than just a typical dollhouse. It has working electricity, chandeliers, wallpaper and a bunch of miniature paintings that are copies of famous works by Renoir and Monet.
