Elizabeth Bennet, painted by Jilli Roberts for the Deepings Dolls.
The heroine of Jane Austen’s most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth (Lizzy, Eliza) Bennet represents both of the titular qualities in spades. She is quick to judge Mr Darcy by appearances, while scorning him for doing the same thing about her sister, her family and herself. She is also a warm, witty and rebellious Regency woman who is fiercely loyal to those she loves, and has been portrayed marvellously in film and television by such actresses as Greer Garson, Jennifer Ehle, Keira Knightley.
Our Deepings Dolls version is depicted with (painted) mud on her hem, from walking through the fields. You can request a version without the mud if you prefer.
