“Crystal Fairy Dreams,” premiere issue in the Flights of Enchantment Musical Collection, exclusively available from Ardleigh Elliott, is an elegant treasure that beautifully represents the inspiring power of dreams. The dramatic fairy artwork of acclained artist Amy Brown is featured on the front of this urn-shaped musical with ornately scrolling 22K gold-finished handles. The exterior is underglazed in rich violet and opalescent tones, perfectly setting off the enchanted fairy as she leaps joyously upward. This enchanting music box opens to reveal yet another treasure inside—sparkling “wishing crystals” inscribed with uplifting words that will inspire you to follow your own special dreams. It plays the enchanting melody of “Beautiful Dreamer” at the turn of a key as a perfect finishing touch.
The “Crystal Fairy Dreams” musical is crafted of fine Heirloom Porcelain®, triple-fired for lustrous beauty according to an Old World process. The distinctive mottled glaze perfectly frames Amy Brown’s beautiful fairy, echoing the colours of her magical wings. Raised-relief scrollwork lavished with gleaming 22K gold and a glittering faux jewel topper add elegance and sparkle. The faceted faux jewel “wishing crystals” are presented in coordinating colours.
Measures about 4 1⁄4 inches high.
