Fairy tales have been a part of my culture for centuries, since long before the Grimm brothers began collecting them and writing them down. They've changed -- oftentimes edited by the Grimms themselves -- and been re-told and re-imagined so many times it's difficult to keep track of them all. And yet in each one, there are images and moments that are iconic, and which always stay with us, through all the re-tellings.
In the 1812 Brothers Grimm version of the story, the prince's party lasts for three nights, and every night he tries to find out where Cinderella lives, but she eludes him. On the third night, Cinderella is gifted with the most gorgeous gown yet, and slippers covered in gold. The prince, not wanting to be thwarted again, coats the stairs of his castle in pitch, so that as Cinderella runs down them, one of her gold slippers becomes stuck, and is left behind.
The sew-on patch is stitched on black cotton canvas, and measures approximately 4.7" tall by 3.2" wide.
