Ive always wanted to see these myself. I am currently researching fairy funeral processions which are very prominent in local folklore around Preston, Lancashire. Im creating a short shadow piece about this for a presentation at the Harris Museum , Preston to accompany their current ‘Enchanted Worlds’ art of fairy stories and mermaid tales exhibition. one can only guess why these poppets were made and for what superstitious activity!
