This magnet pictures an illustration by Warwick Goble from the early 1900s. It appeared in The Fairy Book by Dinah Maria Craik  accompanying a German tale from the Grimm Brothers, The Iron Stove.

The illustration pictures the princess in a tree where she plans to spend the night after an unsuccessful nine-day search for her would-be husband, a prince she rescued from an iron stove in which he'd been imprisoned by a witch.  From her elevated perch in the tree the princess sees a light in the distance and follows it.

Dinah Craik (1826-1887) was an English poet and novelist, also known by her maiden name as Miss Mulock.

English artist Warwick Goble (1862–1943) illustrated dozens of children's books and magazines, including fairy tale anthologies and such classics as Treasure Island and Kidnapped.
