THE SONG OF
THE APPLE BLOSSOM FAIRIES

Up in the tree we see you, blossom-babies,
All pink and white;
We think there must be fairies to protect you
From frost and blight,
Until, some windy day, in drifts of petals,
You take your flight.

You'll fly away! But if we wait with patience,
Some day we'll find
Here in your place, full-grown and ripe, the apples
You left behind -
A goodly gift indeed, from blossom-babies
To human-kind!

From the book A Flower Fairy Alphabet - The Apple Blossom Fairies are constructed of the finest all wool felt. The protective older sister fairy measures 8 1/2" tall and is jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with the RJW ball & socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism. Her legs are specially sculpted in a relaxed sitting position per the original illustration by Cicely Mary Barker. The baby fairy is similarly constructed and measures a wee 6 1/2" tall. Both fairies have delicately hand painted features and wigs of the finest imported mohair.

The Apple Blossom Fairies are costumed using the finest custom-dyed pure silk fabrics. The gorgeous fairy wings are sewn, molded, and hand painted out of fine silk organza. Both fairies come seated in a detailed, realistic branch of apple blossoms made completely out of felt with delicately airbrushed coloration and molded details. The entire piece displays beautifully and measures approximately 15" wide by 12" high. Note: each doll may be removed from its setting and gently posed.

The Apple Blossom Fairies are produced in an edition limited to only 150 pieces worldwide. Each set will come enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
