This magnet pictures an illustration by Warwick Goble from the early 1900s. It appeared in The Fairy Book by Dinah Maria Craik  accompanying a French tale by Charles Perrault, Riquet with the Tuft.  

The illustration pictures Prince Ricky of the Tuft with the elder beautiful-but-dumb sister to whom he grants the gift of intelligence in exchange for a marriage promise.

 

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.
