This is one of the very popular large Carlton Ware Girls , each beautifully painted in very desirable colours.
This one is part of a series of large Garden Figurines, each decorated in a genuine likeness to the same butterfly in real life - this one based as far as possible on a Large White. The series forms part of an overall theme running through the Carlton Ware figurines now, namely, The Garden Series.
Currently, the Garden Fairy is available in similar colourways to the Butterfly series: Red Admiral, Painted Lady and Orange Tip, Large Blue.
Each butterfly is in a limited edition of just 50 pieces worldwide. The Garden Fairy stands approx 9.5 inches (24 cms) tall.
It is backstamped appropriately showing 3/50 also.
It is in pristine condition with no chips/nibbles nor restoration work.
