Offered for sale is a rather enchanting "Heliotrope Fairy" figure produced by Royal Worcester, based on the wonderful illustrations by Cecily Mary Barker. Since their first publication in 1923, Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairies have enchanted both adults and children alike around the world. The botanically accurate drawings in the 170 original illustrations, coupled with the enchanting fairy images based on real children from Cicely’s sister’s nursery school, appeal to our innate sense of magic and wonder. Originally accompanied by a poem or verse dedicated to the individual Flower Fairy the charming characters and detailed artwork have also been translated into fiction for young readers as well as the New York Times bestselling Fairyopolis series. Heliotrope’s my name; and why People call me “Cherry Pie”, That I really do not know; But perhaps they call me so, ’Cause I give them such a treat, Just like something nice to eat. For my scent—O come and smell it! How can words describe or tell it? And my buds and flowers, see, Soft and rich and velvety— Deepest purple first, that fades To the palest lilac shades. Well-beloved, I know, am I— Heliotrope, or Cherry Pie! Share
