    A fine, 14 inches tall Henri-léon Charles Robalbhen (1862-1906) high-fired stoneware figurine, Paris, France, circa 1900.

    Rose Fyleman's 1917 poem "Fairies" begins with the line "There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!" During the Victorian era, fairies were a popular theme that could be readily found in literature, paintings - everywhere.

    Here we have a garden fairy turning a tulip upside down and spilling the morning dew down her gown, to pool at her feet.

    Absinthe, typically green in color, was an alcoholic spirit popular in the Victorian Age, and it was commonly referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy). Fairy "sightings" increased proportional to the amount of Absinthe consumed.

    Please see close-ups.

      I admit that I didn't know it was a tulip, and was very confused before I turned pic around, and saw the stem.
      This is a stunning piece, beautiful just beautiful.
