This is a gorgeous Royal Doulton lady from the Figure of the Year 2000 collection. The lady of the year 2000 was the lovely Rachel. This young lady is wearing a variegated pink gown, in an elegant pose and holding a fan. This collection was started in 1991, and is one of the most sought after collections. Each figurine was created for a specific year and was only sold during that year, making each piece rare. The uniqueness of each figurine comes from the talented people at Royal Doulton who painted and made each figurine by hand.
