Made during the 1950s/60s, this magical fairy was made by Pelham Puppets, a famous British toy company established in 1948.

Pelham's fairy puppets were part of the SL range which referred to String Luxury puppets. SL fairies were one of the puppets that were in production throughout Pelham Puppet's history.

Fairy's dresses came in a number of styles although most were white featuring small spangled or sequinned areas. Most fairies also had white felt wings. Hair was also usually blonde, but shades varied from snow-white platinum to yellow as sunshine. Very few Pelham fairy puppets were ever alike.

This particular fairy has a very sweet and old-fashioned demeanour. She has wavy golden locks and wears a white dress that has sheer skirting dotted with occasional coloured sequins and puffy, elasticated sleeves.

Painted silver ballet slippers adorn her feet.

Her pretty little face has been carefully painted with enchanting bright blue eyes, rose-blushed cheeks and a strawberry red smile - no wonder she casts a spell on who her glance upon her!

This beguiling fairy puppet is in overall good vintage condition for her age.

Her strings are intact and tangle free. Her wooden string holder features some small childlike writing that says 'black'. This appears over the area where the puppet's black strings are strung.

She comes with a Pelham yellow box which shows signs of wear.

The Fairytale Bit: So where do fairies come from? Throughout the ages, mortals have considered various origins for these magical beings. Some say that they spring from the laughter of babies, that they are stolen children (changlings), demoted angels or even a type of dead person.
