The Hamilton "Royal Princesses" Collection
Collector Elaine B has two of the "Royal Princesses", (including one not shown on our webpage), and is keen to learn more about her beautiful dolls.
Here's what we know : The “Hamilton Collection” dolls were sculpted by John Bromley, (who later went on to work for Royal Doulton), and dressed by Peggy Nisbet’s expert craftswomen. They were produced exclusively for the Hamilton Collection, were never sold under the Nisbet label, and because of this, many Nisbet collectors may never have been aware that they existed! The full series comprised six dolls – though we only have pictures of three at present. Each doll was made as a tribute to a real Princess, who was depicted as a young girl approaching her teenage years.
Can you tell us anything more about these dolls? In particular,
- Who were the princesses they represented?
- When did they first go on sale?
- How much did they sell for?
- Can you tell us the names of the missing princesses?
- Can you supply photographs of the missing dolls, or scans of any relevant documentation, catalogue pages, etc?
