A unique royal-inspired Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Anniversary wattle commemorative doll, exclusive to The Ashton-Drake Galleries – On 3rd February 1954, the newly-crowned Queen Elizabeth II arrived in Australia, becoming the first reigning monarch to visit our shores. The following evening, after a grand tour of Sydney, Her Majesty arrived at a State Banquet wearing a gown designed by Norman Hartnell, the couturier who created both her Coronation and wedding gowns. The ensemble was made of mimosa gold tulle and adorned with gold wattle paillettes, Australia's floral icon. Endearingly referred to as the 'Wattle Dress' the gown symbolised the young queen's deep and sincere affection for the land Down Under. To honour this profound moment in our history, the Master Artisans of the Ashton-Drake Galleries have created the 'Our Queen' Commemorative Wattle Dress Doll the first-ever figural tribute to the dress which thrilled a generation.

Our Master Artisans have created a stunning likeness of the young queen, capturing her serene beauty and elegant poise on that night of nights. Handcrafted of fine bisque porcelain and delicately handpainted for incredible lifelike realism, the figural portrait stands a majestic 43cm tall and is poseable. The dress is a masterpiece of the doll costumer' art. This Diamond Anniversary Tribute magnificently recreates each aspect of the ensemble with fastidious care. Finely threaded fabric, hued in the exact shade of the original forms the layered bodice, skirt, wrap with joyous wattle sprigs accenting the design. The famed blue Garter Riband sash provides a regal contrast and displays the Queen's Garter Star, which also appeared on her Coronation Gown. Queen Victoria's Bow Brooches are also expertly recreated, as have Victoria's Pearl Drop Earrings and the necklace given to the Queen by Nizam of Hyderabad, as a wedding present. Queen Mary's Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara complete the ensemble in an elegant style.

Royal keepsakes as magnificently conceived and flawlessly executed as the 'Our Queen' Wattle Dress Diamond Anniversary Dolle become proud centrepieces of Royal Heirloom Collections. However, the edition of just 1,954 may sell out quickly, particularly as it will be available to all Royal Collectors of The Bradford Exchange on a worldwide basis. So don't miss out. Order now!
