THE POPLAR FAIRY
White fluff is drifting like snow round our feet;
Puff! it goes blowing
Away down the street.
Where does it come from? Look up and see!
There, from the Poplar!
Yes, from that tree!
Tassels of silky white fluffiness there
Hang among leaves
All a-shake in the air.
Fairies, you well may guess, use it to stuff
Pillows and cushions,
And play with it - puff!
From the book Flower Fairies of the Trees - The Poplar Fairy is constructed of the finest all wool felt. He measures just 8 1/2" tall and is fully jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with new ball & socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism. The Poplar Fairy has pointed fairy ears, delicately hand painted features, and a wig of the finest imported mohair. He has a sculpural molded felt body and limbs and his tiny babyish hands are sewn with individual fingers. The stunning fairy wings are sewn, molded, and hand painted out of fine silk organza.
The Poplar Fairy is costumed per the original illustration by Cicely Mary Barker in a green felt costume consisting of bloomers and jacket trimmed in white alpaca plush. He wears custom-dyed cotton knit tights and hand cobbled felt shoes with plush pom poms.
The Poplar Fairy will be produced in an edition limited to 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. As part of the Flower Fairies Collection, matching numbers are available to other dolls in the series. This item will also be available through all R. John Wright dealers.
