The Royal Doulton® 8" Dressing for the Ball Limited Edition Bone China Figurine is a worldwide exclusive, numbered limited edition figurine modeled by Neil Faulkner. This is the first Royal Doulton® figurine to feature a mirror which has been crafted using a brand-new special glaze effect to give the illusion of a true reflection. Paying homage to the Old Country pattern, this hand crafted and hand decorated piece depicts a tableau of two lovely, pretty ladies dressing for a very special evening, the Debutante Ball. Every detail of their gown, hair and accessories must be perfect, and the great attention to detail showcased on this tableau truly illustrates the talent of Neil Faulkner and all the artisans that contributed their talent and expertise to making Dressing For The Ball one of the most beautiful pieces introduced.

A worldwide exclusive to the Shopping Channel, the tableau captures the debutantes in their dressing room putting on the final touches while admiring their reflection in the mirror. The beautifully sculpted dressing table and matching chair looks so real it could be be an original carved antique, while the vase filled with handmade florals adds a magnificent touch. The dressing table’s vanity accessories are decorated with elements taken from the classic Old Country Roses dinnerware pattern. This 3rd limited edition tableau is destined to become a highly sought after collectable that you'll admire for years.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

By Shirl

from B.C.

Silver Reviewer

This is a beautiful RD piece. I missed the first in the series, which I would like to find, but have the last two. Very impressive detail. I have many many RD ladies as well as Coleport ladies and love my collection. I am not impressed with RD having their products made in Thailand rather then England so may curtail future purchases.

Great product

By kare

from bridgewater, ns

I very much liked the newest RD in this series. However, I really liked the first two better - with the little girls. It would be nice to see maybe a kitten or puppy also. Because it was in a series, I couldn't quite understand why this figurine was not in proportionate size to the others.

Royal Doulton Dressin for the Ball

By EDITH

from PORT COLBORNE, Ont,

I have purchased several Royal Doulton Figurines. This is the third one from the Pretty Ladies collection. I love the detail given to each one. They are breathtaking. I know I will continue my collection with the Shopping Channel. I'm so glad you offer so many different styles and different series. There are times it's hard to choose. I also like the fact that they are signed.Keep them coming.

Really like my RD!

By Lt7

from BC

My piece came well packed and delivered! The details are exactly what was promised. The only downfall I have is that they are not making these pieces in England anymore; however, it is a limited and signed piece, so I hope that compensates for the value in the long run. But I think the details are stunning and beautiful!

Not worth it

By Lee

from Ontario

Bronze Reviewer

I have bought slot of royal doulton figurines in the past. Always said made in England this one does not. The blue dress is poorly painted missing paint in spots. It looks like a rush job. Piece work maybe. That is what I was told. Will not buy again.

Bronze Reviewer

I have been collecting this set & I love them ...This one, however, had only the 2 figures & I preferred the 3 figures...Perhaps the future ones could go back to that, maybe 'at the beach' or 'at the circus'.
They do all display beautifully together.

A Rushed Producted, Not Worth The Money

By SuzieQ

from Winnipeg

I having been purchasing RD figurines for more than 20 yrs. All of mine are stamped "made in England", this was to be my first Thai made RD figurine. Based on what was shown on TV & the TSC website I ordered the showstopper. A mistake.

On opening the box it appeared quite nice, but once out of the box it was a different case.

The texture of the finishing glaze on the blue dress was rough to the touch, there were 2 splotches of paint on the back of the dress, the back of the chair was over painted with the green paint over lapping onto the "wood" framing, yet the front of the chair was most carefully & cleanly painted. How odd. The brown paint of one of the dresser legs was overlapping onto the yellow dress & the yellow dress itself had bump on it that had not been cleaned off when removed from the mould. The bases of small make-up pots on the dresser were over painted in brown, yet the comb & brush were cleanly done...

It would seem several people with differing painting skills painted this figurine, plus where were RD quality control people??? This item is clearly a "second".

I have been left with the opinion that these were a rushed batch that TSC ordered. Better to have taken more time in the production phase & have had this figurine released for Mother's Day instead of now.

Needless to say this one was sent back & I will be very careful in future re buying any Thai made RD figurines. Once burned, twice shy.
