The ‘metamorphosis’ of Leslie Harradine’s The Proposal!

Not exactly a total re-incarnation but as we know from a look at similar figures a while ago, several of Harradine’s early figures were later adapted and re-introduced into the HN range.

Just like figures including The Windmills Lady who became The Lavender Seller or Sweet Maid who transformed into Millicent, so too did The Proposal HN715 who became this fantastic figurine, Teresa HN1682 and HN1683 in 1935.

The addition of a table and some props creates a really different lady!
