Inspired by a Peter Gee design from the mid-1980s, this Royal Doulton Petite Lady is a vision of winter dress, wearing an elegant cream gown that's accentuated by a deep red winter coat. Rachel looks more than ready to face the bracing winter winds. Her coat is trimmed with soft fur and her delicate shoe peeps out from underneath her gown, the gold buckle shining in the cold clear sun. Elegant new Petite Ladies draw on the finest traditions of Royal Doulton design and craftsmanship. Petites pay tribute to some of the most beloved and best selling Pretty Ladies figures from Royal Doulton's archives. Reproduced on a slightly smaller scale than full-size ladies, each Petite is hand-made from bone china and is beautifully hand-decorated with rich and vibrant colors.
Dressed for winter's chill, Rachel wraps herself in a long red coat trimmed in white fur from the hood to the hem. A ruby slipper topped with a gold buckle peeks out from beneath her cream-colored dress. Based on a 1980s design by artist Peter Gee, 6-1/2-inch-tall Rachel is crafted of fine bone china for Royal Doulton's Petite Pretty Ladies collection, and is hand-painted in rich detail. The highly collectible Pretty Ladies have been produced since 1913 in a variety of sizes and make endearing gifts for collectors or that special someone. Like all Petites, Rachel comes with a certificate of authenticity and is nestled in a black-and-white Royal Doulton gift box. --Ann Bieri
