Diana, Princess of Wales was; and is still, even after seventeen-years since her untimely passing, an iconic figure. Her charitable work has remained one of the most positive highlights her life along with her beauty, and just being human. She touched many lives the world over.
In 1985, Princess Diana was at a White House dinner and as quoted, First Lady Nancy Reagan whispered to actor John Travolta that Diana had a secret wish to dance with him. "John seemed a bit shy," she recalls, but "of course as soon as they started dancing everyone stepped aside and watched in awe. They were marvelous together."
The dress, the necklace, shoes, and earrings Princess Diana wore at that event is replicated in this stunning doll of Princess Diana. Designed by the famous artist, Titus Tomescu for the Ashton-Drake Galleries, this porcelain "Diana, Princess of Wales" Doll captured those moments. A limited edition that ran from 1998 until 2001 in which the molds were broken never to be made again, this doll is the 1998 first year model from the private collection and is absolutely pristine.
Not only is the certificate of authenticity present, the magazine story showing this unforgettable event and when she bashed Prince Charles with a breakaway champagne bottle in 1990 and the picture of her in the pink outfit encircled by the ballerinas from the English National Ballet comes with this treasured doll.
From every angle, the quality and beauty is so well captured, you can clearly see that this is one of the finest, most complete of these. There are no issues as she has been kept in the protective display case away from handling since new.
Her dress is remarkable and the color shimmers with brilliance. Her necklace is stunning. On the certificate, which had been trimmed to fit a frame, the matching numbers on her are: 8742 FE. Those numbers and the artist, Titus Tomescu's name is on her mid back just below the swooping neckline of the dress. This gorgeous doll is truly ready for your display.
She stands at 20-21" tall and will be packed with absolute care.
