Kingdom Doll Brunel

Kingdom Doll's newest 16" resin fashion doll, Brunel, was named for Isambard Kingdom Brunel who lived from 1806-1859 in Great Britain. He was an accomplished mechanical and civil engineer involved in the building of dockyards, railways, steamships, bridges and tunnels.

Luckily the doll looks nothing like the man.



Brunel wears a long silk coat dress with a ruffled peplum in the back. Under her coat are black sequined leggings and black short boots trimmed in metallic gold. 


Her choker is woven of black and gold beads with a magnetic closure by Mike Austin.

The crowning glory is a most dramatic tall wig of mahogany over blended silver and black by Ilaria Mazzoni.

This is the last doll who will be made using the Novantae sculpt and I am thrilled to add her to my collection.

  1. I am so happy for you! She is beautiful and you must have grabbed her fast as I'm seeing many people asking to buy her in groups. I fell in love with the Brigantia one after you posted a picture of her. I even ran into the artist who had taken the picture to let her know how much I loved it!

  4. Collectors must really like the Kingdom Dolls line because they seem to sell out quickly and don't appear on the secondary market -- or maybe I'm not looking in the right place! There hasn't been a discernible misstep with any of the dolls. They are absolutely breathtaking. One day...!

    1. I think any that have been sold on the secondary market go as a result of people "begging" on the doll boards for one. Thus, the transactions would be private. I hope you do get one eventually. When I stopped buying so many FR dolls, I realized that my budget could accomodate a few of this type of doll. I recommend you keep track of all of your doll expenditures to see how much you actually spend in one year (if you don't already do so.)
