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
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.
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.
