Holly Fairy
Pin It on Pinterest


O, I am green in wintertime,
When other trees are brown;
Of all the trees (So saith the rhyme)
The holly bears the crown.
December days are drawing near
When I shall come to town,
And carol-boys go singing clear
Of all the trees (O hush and hear!)
The holly bears the crown
For who so well-beloved and merry
As the scarlet Holly Berry?

From Flower Fairies of the Winter - The Holly Fairy is constructed of the finest all wool felt. This delightful sprite measures 11 1/2" tall and is fully jointed at neck, shoulders, hips and knees with the RJW ball & socket jointing system with an internal wood mechanism. The Holly Fairy has delicately hand painted features and a wig of fine mohair. A sculptural molded felt body and limbs - and molded hands with tiny individual fingers - contribute to his realistic design. The handsome fairy wings are sewn, embossed, and delicately hand painted out of fine silk organza.

The Holly Fairy is costumed per the original illustration shown above by Cicely Mary Barker. He wears custom-dyed cotton jersey tights and a fel tunic with a cowl headdress. His entire outfit including his tiny felt shoes are festooned with holly berries and leaves made out of felt and silk organza. In one hand he holds a stalk of holly made completely of felt with subtle airbrushed coloration.
