This magnet pictures an illustration by HJ Ford from the late 1800s.  It appeared in The Orange Fairy Tale Book by Andrew Lang accompanying a French story, The White Doe (aka The Doe in the Woods)  by Madame d'Aulnoy. 

In this illustration the childless queen makes an agreement with a crab fairy that results in the birth of Princess Desirée and sets up a series of adventures.

Andrew Lang (1844 - 1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, Homeric scholar and historian. He is best known for folklore anthologies, particularly for 12 Fairy Tale Books published from 1889 to 1910.

British artists Henry Justice Ford (1860–1941) and Lancelot Speed (1860-1931) became famous as illustrators of Lang’s Fairy books.
