The Queen of Hearts Description
R. John Wright presents The Queen of Hearts. This incredible rendition of The Queen of Hearts is modeled after Sir John Tenniel's illustrations in the original book from 1889. The Queen of Hearts stands approximately 20 inches tall and is fully jointed. Handcrafted from the finest all wool felt, she features an incredible molded head with intaglio eyes, an open mouth and delicate hand-painted features. Her wig made of the finest mohair frames her face and her expressive felt hands feature individual fingers.
The Queen of Heart's incredibly detailed costume consists of a regal robe emblazoned with a printed and pieced felt geometric design in heraldic hues. She wears cotton undergarments, tights and laced period slippers on her feet. Her headress includes a crown and wimple made of stiffened buckram and felt. Exactly as shown in the classic illustrations, drop-shape earrings dangle from each ear. In one hand The Queen of Hearts holds her heart-shaped fan constructed of wood and felt.
