Radiant in an azure blue gown, True Love holds a basket packed with dainty forget-me-not flowers conveying the most heartfelt message of love. The basket includes 15 handmade flowers, each one exquisitely painted in shades of dark and pale blue and soft pink. More fine details such as an embossed forget-me-not floral motif to the dress, an ornate platinum cuff bracelet and matching necklace add finishing touches to this exceptional figurine. True Love’s abundant locks of glossy brunette hair provide striking contrast to the blue tones of her dress and floral basket.
The botanical name for the vibrant forget-me-not is Myosotis, which derives from the Greek word mus meaning mouse and ous for ear, because the plant’s leaves are shaped like mouse’s ears. Meanwhile, the name forget-me-not, it is said to have come from a German legend in which a lover, while gathering the flowers fell into a river and cried “forget me not” as he drowned. The blue variety is most common but it can be in shades of sky blue through to mauve and azure blue as well as white, cream, pink and striped varieties.
