Pride and Prejudice dolls celebrate the Jane Austen £10 note!

25 July 2013

We're celebrating the great news about Jane Austen being chosen as the face of the new £10 note by releasing our Pride and Prejudice collection dolls early!
Pride and Prejudice dolls celebrate the Jane Austen £10 note!
You can own the exquisite porcelain hand-crafted dolls, portraying Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy in their wedding day finery, from today.
The much-loved story of Pride and Prejudice follows Elizabeth as she deals with issues of manners, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the early 19th Century.

Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy’s costume features a handsome waistcoat under a fitted morning suit with a cravat and top hat. He features perfectly groomed sideburns! Elizabeth’s hair is curled and styled, and she wears an ivory wedding dress complete with over dress and veil. Underneath she’s wearing silky bloomers with lace detail. Delicate detailing is a feature of both dolls’ outfits.
The Pride and Prejudice author will be the next face of the note, replacing Charles Darwin, probably in 2017.


We’re in the money – in miniature, at least

5 September 2012

People love and loathe the game of Monopoly in equal measure but for Klaas Schultz, who lives in South Africa, it has to be love to judge by his amazing miniature reproduction of the classic board game.

Since being introduced to world of miniatures ten years ago by his wife, Klaas has made a range of miniature reproductions based on classic games and toys.

These include Meccano building sets, Dinky cars, sailing boats, jigsaw puzzles and Parker pen set.

The idea for making a miniature Monopoly set, which comes complete with houses, hotels, dice and money, may have come from Klaas’ love of classic games but it could also have been because of his former occupation.

He used to be a bank manager!
