12 Fairy Tale Character Images
Ever since we were little, many of us had a favorite fairy tale character. Whether it was the big bad wolf or Cinderella, we knew that if they could get through their obstacles and find love in the end then so can we! You’ll find some of your favorite characters in the post below, these are not modern Disney illustrations, they are old fashioned Fairy Tale Classic pictures from Antique books. I hope you enjoy browsing through these!
Beauty and the Beast Images
Above we have an Art Deco style illustration of the famed Fairy Tale “Beauty and the Beast.” I have never seen one quite like this. The couple is sitting on a most ornate couch. The woman is dressed in a long, flowing gown. The Beast resembles a wild Boar in this painting with a long snout and upright ears. He is wearing a fancy military style outfit in red, which includes a sword. The room behind them has amazing detail. Quite unusual.
Here is the Beast serving food to the not so hungry Beauty. She is holding a fan and a long red scarf next to her face like she does not want to taste anything. This image has such pretty, vibrant colors!
Our final “Beauty and the Beast” illustration shows a lovely young girl with long golden hair at a dining table with the Beast. The Beast here is a huge Bear with giant claws. She is serving him a tiny cup of something. That giant Bear looks pretty real to life but the girl seems totally unafraid of him!
Fairy Tale Character Images
This wonderful classic Red Riding Hood graphic comes from a 1908 Children’s book! Bundled up in her thick red cape, she is surrounded by two large yellow birds flying near and a little white rabbit in the corner who is wearing a tool belt with tools attached. Interesting! This is another one from the collection of my dear friend Ted. At one time he lived in a huge Victorian house where one room was dedicated entirely to Little Red! He decided to clear out some of his sizable collection of the most amazing Red Riding Hood items that I have ever seen! This was such a lucky find for me!
Pictured above is a pretty Fairy Tale image of “Little Red Riding Hood” carrying a basket of food to her Grandmother and knocking on the door. Beautiful pink and yellow Roses along with a Butterfly on top of a Rose bush are in the foreground. She is on the doorstep. I love the banner that reads, “Here I am, Grannie.”
Above is another image from the antique Red Riding Hood book. This one is the “Big Bad” Wolf with “A Guilty Conscience” who is attempting to open the front door of Grannie’s house. (He looks more like a cute doggy to me in the image.) It is my favorite one in my collection! I just love the darling bird sitting on the berry branch next to the Wolf.Pictured above is “Little Red Riding Hood” and the Big Bad Wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing. There is a giant tree next to them. A pink sign on the tree reads, “An Enemy in disguise” in a beautiful typestyle. She has dropped her food on the path so obviously she was startled. I wonder if she knows it’s actually the Wolf!
A final image from the antique “Little Red Riding Hood” book. This, of course. is the old Grandma wearing a large bonnet and scarf. She has a patchwork quilt over her knees. A sign above her reads, “Is that you, darling?” I think the colors are exquisite. Such a beautiful multi-colored patchwork on the quilt or blanket.
Cinderella Character Pictures
Here we have a young blonde and blue eyed Cinderella sweeping the floor with a heavy duty hand made broom. She is wearing a pretty white and blue apron over a bright red dress. She has such a pretty, sweet looking face!
Above we have a beautiful Cinderella all dressed for the Ball. It seems she must be just arriving as she is at the bottom of the staircase. She appears to be in a hurry to get back to the carriage before the strike of Midnight. Left behind on the staircase is one of her tiny white slippers.
Featured above is Cinderella and the Handsome Prince walking down the stairway. He is holding her hand gently. I think he is leading her to the dance floor. He has on a pink suit with wide lace collar, looking somewhat like a dandy. Guests in the background are watching them intently.
Sleeping Beauty Images
This lovely Sleeping Beauty Illustration is actually a Victorian Advertising Trade Card. I’m not exactly sure what the product was for, perhaps something medicinal. I just love how fanciful this picture is! Sleeping beauty is wearing a pink and blue gown. She’s sleeping in a fancy French looking Canopy Bed that’s topped with Ostrich Plumes. Her Prince is dressed like a Musketeer and the whole scene is framed with some gorgeous huge flower vines. Such an enchanted looking scene!
Royal Carriage clipart fit for a Princess
I’m squeezing in one more image here. It’s this very elegant Royal looking carriage! Perhaps after Cinderella married the prince, she traveled around in this beautiful Carriage fit for a Princess! This one comes from an 1851 London Catalog and, at the time, it was manufactured in Northampton.
Or perhaps she would have chosen this unusual looking fancy carriage! It looks like it has a hood that can pop up or down and it has a lovely carriage lamp at the front.
