I do believe in fairies!

When Tinker Bell is sick in J.M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan, everybody in the audience affirms their belief in fairies to save her by crying out, ‘I do believe in fairies!’. Thanks to the success of this play fairies were in vogue in the early 1900s. Faith in fairies flourished during the 1920s when two little girls took photographs of fairies, which were published by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the celebrated author of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Fairy books for children became hugely popular, notably Cicely Mary Barker’s fantasy illustrations of fairies and flowers. Royal Doulton responded to this new fairy phenomenon with some beautiful little figurines of fairies cavorting among flowers and toadstools. Leslie Harradine modeled six different figures and each was accessorized with hand-made flowers, assembled petal by petal. They were decorated in a variety of colors and 16 different HN numbers were issued in 1929 and 1930.
