Special Collectors Set 5
The Battle of Waterloo
Limited to 250 Sets - Issued in 1971
This set was issued to coincide with the release of the epic film "Waterloo"
Lovely as they are, Empress Josephine and Charlotte are typical of the fine costume detail that Peggy Nisbet lavished on her female characters.
The starring roles in this set of dolls must surely go to the three male protagonists - In the world of doll collecting at this time, male dolls were always in the minority, (and possibly still are). Dolls in military uniform, (Action Man and G.I. Joe excepted), are even rarer. But this is where Peggy Nisbet excels - Her miniature military costumes are excellent, and make any group of dolls that includes them just a little more special.
Centre stage in this exciting set is the excellent Duke of Wellington, yet another of our National Heroes, stunningly presented by Peggy!
The complete set consisted of the following five dolls :
- P.696 - Napoleon Bonaparte
- P.697 - Empress Josephine
- P.698 - The Duke of Wellington
- P.699 - Charlotte, Duchess of Richmond
- P.700 - The Duke of Gordon
