King Henry by Angelique Miniatures


AIM member Louise of  Angelique Miniatures has updated her very popular King Henry VIII doll.

A superbly detailed one twelfth scale miniature porcelain doll standing approx. six inches tall, Henry wears a lavishly decorated silk doublet with braid trimmed silk skirts and matching codpiece. Gold decorated ribbon garters hold up his ivory silk hoes and on his feet are typical square-toed leather shoes. Henry’s fine coat has a large ‘fur’ collar and on his head is a feathered and bejewelled black silk hat. Henry holds leather gloves in one hand and has a tiny leather-sheathed dagger hanging around his waist.

Each doll is individually hand-crafted to order.
