I was a warrior,
When, long ago,
Arrows of Dogwood
Flew from the bow.
Passers-by, nowadays,
Go up and down,
Not one remembering
My own renown.

Yet when the Autumn sun
Colours the trees,
Should you come seeking me,
Know me by these:
Bronze leaves and crimson leaves,
Soon to be shed;
Dark little berries,
On stalks turning red.

From Flower Fairies of the Autumn - The Dogwood Fairy is constructed of the finest all wool felt. He measures 11 1/2" tall and is fully jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with new ball & socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism. The Dogwood Fairy has delicately hand painted features and a wig of fine mohair. The Dogwood Fairy has a sculpural molded felt body and limbs and his hands are sewn with individual fingers. His handsome fairy wings are sewn, molded, and hand painted out of fine silk organza.

The Dogwood Fairy is costumed per the original illustration shown above by Cicely Mary Barker. His entire outfit including cap is fashioned out of molded and hand painted felt leaves in beautiful shades of claret and green. This Autumn Flower Fairy wears custom dyed cotton knit tights and holds a detailed, realistic stalk of Dogwood made out of felt with leather berries!
