Early this year I found a naked doll in one of my fave thrift shops, I rarely go to thrift stores now, my company has relocated so change of route has made it impossible for me to visit during lunch break.
I’m not really into small dolls, but she’s kind’a looked vintage so I took her home. She was made by HORNBY a company in UK that produces model railways, locomotives and educational devices for children during the 1900s and began marketing dolls in 1980s.
Anyway, this doll I found belongs to the Flower Fairies produced in 1983. Inspired by Cicely Mary Barker’s drawings.
Since she was naked, I don’t know which one she is among the Flower Fairy Dolls. I forgot the color of the petal I found tied around her, I threw it away, awww! She’s 7″ tall, same material as Barbie’s. There were 7 Original Flower Fairies produced and many more were made after.
