They show Diana, Princess of Wales with her two sons – William by her side and a tiny Harry in a bassinet.

The objects are stored in the collection of the Museum of London but are not on display.

It is believed they were donated by the manufacturer House of Nisbet.

They were made in Dunster Park, Winscombe, and a certificate inside the box says that the dolls are number 332 of a limited edition set.
