Flower Fairies Tin

10th May 2024

For anyone not familiar with Cicely Mary Barker, this talented English illustrator is best known for her series of books first published in 1923 titled ‘Flower Fairies’.

Cicely had a magical ability to created gorgeous illustrations featuring fairies frolicking about in flowers, accompanying them with her whimsical poetry.

When we first saw this petite tin shaped like a book, complete with a hinged lid and featuring the enchanting Red Clover Fairy, we couldn't help but add it to our website!

If you can’t resist this gorgeous tin either, click on the link below.

For now, we’ll leave you with The Red Clover Fairy poem by Cicely Mary Barker:

The Fairy:
O, what a great big bee
Has come to visit me!
He’s come to find my honey.
O, what a great big bee!

The Bee:
O, what a great big Clover!|
I’ll search it well, all over,
And gather all its honey.
O, what a great big Clover!
