This blog is my virtual scrapbook.
I try to give credits, link back and reference sources in all of my posts.
Please do not remove them, as I don't own any of these pictures, even if I altered them. Thanks.
For collectors, these are the stars amongst butterfly pictures. The fairies. They’re pretty rare and therefore strongly sought after. When I started doing research on this kind of art I really thought that £188,- were quite expensive for this. That was before I watched a battle for an even smaller picture on ebay that ended with £360,- and another with £391,- shortly after.Market Hill Antiques sold two fairy pictures for £595,-. A similar fairy with foil instead of wings went up to £102,-.
