Flower Fairies by Enesco & Cicely Mary Barker
This brand new collection of ceramic, textile and figural gifts features the enchanting Flower Fairies, originally drawn by Cicely Mary Barker. Available from Border Fine Arts Contemporary. The first Flower Fairies illustrations were published in 1923 and combined accurate drawings of flowers - often based on Cicely's studies at London's Kew Gardens - with fairy images based on real children who attended her sister's nursery school. Border Fine Arts designers have been inspired by Cicely's wonderful Candytuft and Gorse illustrations and by adding a contemporary twist using pastel pink and bright yellow backgrounds, have created a gift collection that's perfect for a diverse and multi-generational 21st century audience.
