Product Description



Queen Elizabeth Coronation Ashton Drake Doll

On June 2, 1953, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor­—only 25 years old at the time­—was crowned Queen Elizabeth II. Her coronation ceremony was the first ever to be televised, giving royal watchers around the world a glimpse inside the pageantry and tradition of this historic event. More than 8,000 guests, including foreign royalty and several heads of state, attended the Westminster Abbey ceremony. In the 60 years that have followed, the United Kingdom’s longest-living monarch has become a popular and beloved figure at home and abroad.

To honour this momentous occasion, The Ashton-Drake Galleries has commissioned British doll artist Renata Jansen to create the Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Coronation Doll, a portrait in fine porcelain. This Diamond Anniversary collectible is produced in a hand-numbered limited edition.

The gown Queen Elizabeth II wore on her coronation day was designed especially for her. It was a masterpiece of couture, with short sleeves, a heart-shaped neckline, tapered waist, and a full skirt. It was made of white satin, woven with fibers from the silk farm at Lullingstone Castle. Her Purple Robe of Estate was edged in Canadian ermine, and 12 seamstresses spent more than 3,500 hours stitching the embroidered border of wheat ears and olive branches around the cape’s edge. The St. Edward’s Crown, first worn in 1661, weighed nearly 5 pounds, and was made of solid gold. Our Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Coronation Doll recalls many of these fascinating details with meticulous care, using quality fabrics such as damask and velvet, satin trims, metallic gold threads, and sparkling rhinestones. Her crown and royal scepter are exquisitely crafted to replicate these symbols of sovereignty.

This extraordinary collecting exclusive will be hand-numbered and come with a matching-numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Furthermore, you’ll receive a custom Collector’s Box, suitable for the careful storage of your doll when not on display.

Doll measures 16" (40 cm) high. Doll stand included.
