1965: A fairy tale castle

Cinderella #287:Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary (1979)
According to  "The heroine of a fairy tale, who is treated as a household drudge by a stepmother and stepsisters: a fairy godmother equips her to attend a grand ball, given by a prince, where she loses a glass slipper. The prince finds the slipper, and by means of it, discovers Cinderella, whom he marries, to the great discomfiture of her taskmistress; hence, a girl whose beauty or merit is, for a time, unrecognized. 
From Webster's New 20th Century Dictionary (Unabridged, 2nd Edition, 1979). New York: Simon & Schuster's
