What did Tinker-Bell look like in 1904?

What did Tinkerbell look like back then when she first appeared in Peter Pan in 1904? Did she looked the same as she is now?

    The modern depiction is thanks to Disney rather than J.M. Barrie. In the original play she actually had no form. Tinker Bell was actually a light reflected onto the stage and scenery using a mirror and her "voice" was bells. In the 1911 book based on the 1904 play Barrie describes her in her first appearance in this way:

    "There was another light in the room now, a thousand times brighter than the night-lights, and in the time we have taken to say this, it had been in all the drawers in the nursery, looking for Peter's shadow, rummaged the wardrobe and turned every pocket inside out. It was not really a light; it made this light by flashing about so quickly, but when it came to rest for a second you saw it was a fairy, no longer than your hand, but still growing. It was a girl called Tinker Bell exquisitely gowned in a skeleton leaf, cut low and square, through which her figure could be seen to the best advantage. She was slightly inclined to EMBONPOINT. [plump hourglass figure] "
