Franklin Mint Princess Alexandra Porcelain Doll - Faberge Egg W/24k Gold Accents For Sale
PRINCESS ALEXANDRA - 1998
Beautifully crafted in fine hand painted porcelain with sparkling hand set eyes. Approximately 19" in height.
Princess Alexandra is masterfully crafted in the richness of fine bisque porcelain. Her regal features are lovingly painted by hand to capture her beautifully sculptured cheeks, and the curve of her lips. Her hand-set eyes sparkle from between lush natural lashes. Her hair is hand styled in a cascade of curls, swept high on her had and adorned with strands of iridescent crystalline beads.
Her gown is spectacular befitting her royal stature as a princess. Sewn of regal purple iridescent taffeta, which reflects the light in a myriad of radiant colors. The fitted bodice of opulent brocade is embellished with glittering golden appliques and trimmed with rich beading. The back of her gown is as lavishly detailed as the front with a bustle of ruffled taffeta and brocade. Her sweeping skirts are lavishly ruffled and edged with gold as are the sleeves of her gown. And everywhere is the sparkle of luminescent beads, which give her a radiance unlike any other collector doll you have ever seen.
In her hand is The Aurora Borealis Eggwhich was Princess Alexandra's most precous gift. Embellished with rich accents of 24 karat gold and crowned with a dazzling faux amethest.
