Like them or loath them; if you find them charming or twee these flower fairies certainly encapsulate the image of the fairy that became prevalent in the later half of the twentieth century.
The fairy stories that you find in our museum are tales of completely different, often malevolent, folk. However, every persona needs its place. So when I saw these in the window of my local bric-a-brac shop I quickly decided that they would be the museum's latest acquisition.
Something tells me that they are more likely to bring a blessing than a curse; and that's alright with me.
