THE QUEEN OF HEARTS
We are pleased to present The Queen of Hearts - one of the most ambitious additons to the ALICE IN WONDERLAND COLLECTION. Authentically based on Sir John Tenniel's classic illustrations, The Queen of Hearts stands a formidable 20" tall. Jointed at the neck and shoulders and constructed of the finest all wool felt, she has a unique molded character head with intaglio eyes, a deeply detailed open mouth, and hand painted features. A wig made of yak hair frames her face and her expressive sculptural felt hands include individual sewn and molded fingers.
The Queen of Heart's historically researched Tudor-era costume consists of a regal felt and organdy robe and bustle emblazoned with a printed and pieced geometric design in heraldic hues. She wears lace-trimmed pantaloons, stockings, and hand-cobbled period slippers on her feet. The authentic gable headress includes lappets and a crown made of buckram and starched felt. Exactly as shown in the classic illustrations, drop-shape earrings dangle from each molded ear. In one hand The Queen holds her heart-shaped fan constructed of wood and felt. The Queen of Hearts will come enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box along with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
