'Once Upon A Time' - Queen and Knave of Hearts


'Once Upon A Time' is part of new deluxe Collection of miniature dolls I have created with attention to authenticity, intricate detail and using only fine fabrics.

'The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts, all on a Summer's day. The Knave of Hearts he saw the tarts, and stole them right away!'

Two one-twelfth scale miniature porcelain dolls dressed in Tudor style costume. 

The Queen of hearts wears a red silk over-gown, decorated with golden braid. Her under-sleeves, front skirt panel and bodice insert are made in crisp white cotton printed with tiny red hearts and from her waist hangs a chain of tiny sparkling crystals. 

Underneath, the Queen wears white lace-trimmed pantaloons and matching petticoat. Her painted red shoes are trimmed with frills of lace, black bows and red crystals.

Around her neck is a ribbon choker with a tiny golden heart with red crystal centre and on her pretty blonde hair she wears a golden crown. The Queen carries a plate with two heart-shaped jam tarts (where there should have been four!).

The Knave of Hearts wears a smart suit of fine red silk, richly embellished with gold braid and trimmed with a ruff and sleeve frills of white lace. His shoes are made from real leather and have beautifully detailed golden buckles, set of well by his ivory cotton hose.

On his head the Knave wears a black felt hat with a white curled feather and in each hand he holds a stolen jam tart…….he has even taken a bite out of one of them! (Jam tarts expertly hand-crafted by the UK's 'Ickle Bits')
