Figurines

Diana Bride Figurine From Hamilton Collections arrives

She has finally arrived, the Diana Bride figurine.I noticed that the flowers are missing the yellow roses. But other than that she is pretty , her tiara hasa touch of glitter on it and she does wear the saphire ring.  Now the series is complete.

 

New addition to my Collection: Pink Ribbons Crusade Precious Moments Figurine

I have been trying to get a copy of this figurine for years I lucked out last week and finally won one.
Imagine my surprise when I looked on the bottom and seen that it is signed . The signature on the bottom belongs to Darren McGrady … a.k.a. “The Royal Chef”.  His website is theroyalchef.com   Darren is one of the two Vice
Presidents on the Pink Ribbons Board of Directors.  He was a chef to Queen Elizabeth II for eleven years … and Diana’s personal chef for the last five years of her life … from the time of her separation from Prince Charles (in
late 1992) until that fateful night in Paris.  Darren is now a private chef and continues Diana’s work through his
charitable involvement (via his cookbook and DVD and his speaking/cooking class engagements.)*Confirmed for me by Caroline Davenport a Volunteer for  The Pink Ribbons Crusade.  The figurine is wearing a   a copy of Diana’s gown  which is now own by Suzanne King Founder of the Pink Ribbon’s Crusade . This is a Chapel exclusive piece  made just for the event A Date With Diana.

 I am not real sure why those of us who collected the entire Princess of Our Hearts Series were not notified about this figurine. I can only assume it is the fact that they are  making a Catherine  Bride Figurine as well So they came up with the idea to give us Diana as  a bride too.   I have ordered mine and will post photos when she arrives which I dont expect  see til  after the new year.

England’s Rose Tea Cup Arrives

After a year wait  the first in the Royal Tea Cup series arrvied.  I have to say I was quite pleased its a real nice size  and as you can see it is about the size of a actual teacup.  The saucer is attached to the bottom.  I cant wait for the second one to arrive I just hope it doesnt take another year to arrive.

Diana By Another Name

of=50,262,442HILARYSINGLEA few weeks ago I was talking to a friend on the phone and she was telling me abouta new figurine that she got in the mail.  “Her name is Hilary but she is really Diana in the Christies  pose.”She says.So I went over to ebay to look at the ended  auction,    I was really  surprised to see this “Hilary” wearing Diana’s Ink blue  Victor Edelestein  gown. The only minor difference is that they placed a small rose on the bow of the gown.  Instead of having both arms behind  her back like in the portrait they just had one  arm by her side holding a clutch purse and a rose.  She is wearing Diana’s siganture choker. I am still confused as to why they chose the name Hilary  for this one rather than something like DIANE  or just Diana. Never the less she looks great with the other Diana’s that I  have. Here are the photos I took of her today  after her arrival.

The second shoe in the Fit fora Princess Series has arrived. This one is called Glamour and represnts Diana’s Ink blue Victor Edelstien Gown she wore to the White house and danced with John Travolta. In the center of the shoe you can see a” saphire” that represents Diana’s famous saphire choker. The top of the shoe box is done in silver which I believe is supose to be the pearls of her choker. the bottom of the box is done ina ruched fashion to represent the bodice of Diana’s gown. finshed off with a portriat of Diana.

Finally the Final Figurine in the “Princess of Our Hearts” series arrives

I have been waiting for the final figurine to make it to my home since December the first one was delivered to some unknown address and was returned to Hamilton Collections. This put my order in backorder status . When I finally figured out what happen to poor Diana.I had to reorder the series in order to get the last one.thank goodness I was able to just order the one and not the whole set of 12.   Well she arrived and she is a very nice ending to the series. She is wearing Lot 71 of the Christies Auction Which was designed by Catherine Walker. Diana Wore the gown to Swan lake at the London Coliseum in 1989. The gown sold for 25, 300 at the auction. The figurine is a beautiful representaion of this gown. I really enjoyed collecting this series it was alot of fun looking forward to the new ones and guessing which gowns they would pick for the series.

England’s Rose Pewter bell

thimblesbell

I have seen this bell before on Ebay and often wondered  exactly what she looked like up close . Since a lot of the photos did not do the piece justice. She was sold by  Gimble gifts,  a company which specializing in mail order gifts.  I went on the website and it does not seem to carry the bell any more which is a shame because it is a charming figure .

Real Photos of Elegance Shoe

shoe11Like I promised a few weeks ago here are the real photos of the Shoe Elegance.  I took photos of the two pieces separately and a comparison photo of the figurine with the shoe so you could get an idea of the size of the shoe.
