Thoughtful-looking Lady Victoria May recalls the sepia tinted portraits of young ladies from Victorian times. Stepping out in her beautiful russet and cream-colored outfit, she is a vision of times past, finely observed and rich in period detail. Lady Victoria May is a slender figure with her trim orange and red hued bodice contrasting with the swirl of her overskirt. A truly fitting Prestige figurine, Lady Victoria May is modeled by Tim Potts in bone china in the finest traditions of Royal Doulton.
Royal Doulton’s limited edition Prestige figures exemplify the highest quality, craftsmanship, and artistry in figure making. More than just collectables, Prestige figures are genuine works of art that can take months to create and decorate in detail. Each piece is handmade to order by the Royal Doulton artisans in England. Each limited edition is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity, and the moulds are broken once an edition is fully produced.
As with other years, this year’s figurine once again proves why Royal Doulton leads from the top when it comes to fine collectibles.
Only a handful of Royal Doulton pieces are honored with the title Prestige Figure. These figures represent the pinnacle of achievement for the modelers, artists and potters involved. Prestige figures take months to create and often they involve many separate colors and special glazes.
When you acquire a prestige figure you own one of the rarest Royal Doulton figures ever to be created. In 2005 Royal Doulton introduced the first Prestige Figure of the Year, Lady Sarah Jane. Produced for only one year, each of these prestige figures in this collection represents the finest in artistic achievement ever to emerge from the Royal Doulton studios..
