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!
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.
