The super-sized royal lookalikes were created by The Giant Manufacturing Company in 2015 as part of celebrations to mark Her Majesty becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history.
The 12’ high queens come complete with individually designed costumes, created by Chester-based fashion designer Matthew O’Brien, that were inspired by the cultural diversity of the Commonwealth.
Matthew has established a high-profile reputation as a high-fashion women’s wear couture label selling seasonal collections fresh off the catwalks of London and Paris.
He was awarded the title of Britain’s Top Designer in 2014 and is a judge and mentor on the hit TV show Design Genius for Fashion One TV.
He recently opened his first boutique in Chester’s Rufus Court and is busy with a host of commissions from wedding dresses to bespoke tailoring.
There is also a collection of giant Queen’s heads available for purchase, which were cast from a sculpture created by renowned North Wales artist and sculptor Nick Elphick. Many have been intricately and imaginatively hand decorated by local artists.
Several of the giant Queens were wheeled around the streets of London as part of the 800th anniversary Lord Mayor’s Show last November and have also featured at a variety of events in Cheshire.
The giant Queen figures complete with head and costume are expected to fetch £500 each, while each of the giant Queen’s heads come with a price tag of £200 each.
The 6’ pedestals are priced at £350 each.
David Pickering, who is offering the super-sized Royal collection for sale, said: “ The giant Queens look mightily impressive when displayed all together or as part of a procession and would make a great permanent exhibition for an attraction.
“However, they are equally likely to be snapped up by businesses in the leisure, hospitality, tourism and entertainment sectors for display on their premises.
“We have already received some offers for individual items, which would be perfect to feature in community events and festivities to mark The Queen’s official 90th birthday celebrations on June 11-12.”
