Over 50 Years Experience

 

 

AUCTION
FRI. FEB. 28, AT 6 P.M.
 
 
Douglas Auctioneers is pleased to announce that they have been selected to disburse the contents and Acorn People Dioramas of Nancy Dickinson’s Leeds MA home.

Nancy Dickinson, known as the “Acorn Lady” created a civilization of people with real acorn heads. They live in tree stump houses in the woods. She has made over a period of 30 years at least 30 dioramas from a large 5-foot ship filled with acorn sailors to small examples having one or two acorn people. Each is enclosed in a square Lucite dome and mounted to a museum white painted wood stand.

Inspiration for the Acorn People comes from nature and the woods surrounding the Dickinson house. Nancy earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Rhode Island School of Design and has exhibited her work at numerous museums, galleries, libraries, schools, and other cultural institutions including the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, New York City.
