Crafted in exquisite fine bone china, Royal Doulton's 2019 Annual Figurines are 'Graceful, feminine and enduring.' Created by Neil Faulkner, the renowned British designer, then hand-decorated by skilled ceramic artists, the Annual Figurines are destined to become the heirlooms of the future. Sophia, the Michael Doulton Figure of the Year 2019, is a specially created figurine exclusively sold at events hosted by Michael Doulton, International Brand Ambassador and a member of the famous Royal Doulton dynasty. Michael is the 6th generation descendant of John Doulton who founded the company in 1815. Sophia is a picture of elegance and sophistication in a soft lilac gown with a single shoulder strap embellished with a burst of delicate florals which cascade down the dress to the skirt. Sophia has a demure, gentle smile and her dark brown hair is styled elaborately at her neck, revealing stunning platinum earrings.
