Fairy Circle - Fairies Greeting Card
"There were seven of them altogether," reads the original caption beneath this enchanting circle of fairy companions, a creation brought to life by the talented Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. Celebrated first in her homeland of Australia, Outhwaite's art soon transcended borders and gained international acclaim through her charming postcard illustrations. Among her admirers was none other than Queen Mary, consort of King George V, who, during the 1920s, shared the joy of Outhwaite's fairy world by sending these postcards to her friends.
