Description

This beautiful flag bunting was made from a much worn and well loved copy of Flower Fairies of the Trees by Cecily Mary Barker
Poems & Illustrations by Cicely Mary Barker.
Copyright Blackie & Son Limited.

This bunting would be ideal for a babies nursery, child's room or party, especially for the child who loves fairies, elves and Tinker Bell.

Cicely Mary Barker (28 June 1895 – 16 February 1973) was an English illustrator best known for a series of fantasy illustrations depicting fairies and flowers. Barker's art education began in girlhood with correspondence courses and instruction at the Croydon School of Art. Her earliest professional work included greeting cards and juvenile magazine illustrations, and her first book, Flower Fairies of the Spring, was published in 1923. Similar books were published in the following decades.

Barker was equally proficient in watercolour, pen and ink, oils, and pastels. Kate Greenaway and the Pre-Raphaelites were the principal influences on her work. She claimed to paint instinctively and rejected artistic theories. Barker died in 1973. Though she published Flower Fairy books with spring, summer, and autumn themes, it wasn't until 1985 that a winter collection was assembled from her remaining work and published posthumously.

Each bunting is made up of seven flags, 51/2" x4 1/4". Strung on 100% cream color cotton yarn with soft pastel variegations. I have included enough yarn to spread this bunting out nearly 10 feet. The flags slide easily so you can spread them out as you like. These book pages are printed on paper and designed for indoor use only. The reverse side contains print so the garland is meant to be only one sided, though a few of these fairies are double sided!
