Description

this doll takes the cake on cuteness,, very flappers 1920s era a Nippon side glancing all bisque doll with a curly wig.. .. one piece frozen body with jointed arms... she has Kewpie blue wings on her shoulders and original blush.. matte bisque. Nippon on her back.... the wig may be newer, she is as I received her, but is adorable and with vintage bobby pins holding her hairdo.. original blue silk garment that is shredding.... she is just under 6 inches tall. and nice condition.. sticker underneath and I am wowed.. this is a Rose O'Neill 1913 made in Japan doll. and is an official U.S. patent Kewpie doll. as I received her she will be well packaged for her journey home.. I just did a research on the internet re this doll and interesting news. On November 4, 1913 a patent was issued in the USA to design and make the actual dolls, these early Kewpie dolls are all bisque and made by German manufacturer's Kestner, plus others and may bear their company marking or are unmarked. Authentic licensed Kewpie dolls all have blue tipped wings, were made of high quality materials, have star shaped hands, came with a paper label that could now be missing, many bisque Kewpies are incised on back Rosie O'Neill or bottom of foot © O'Neill (Action Kewpies), licensed Kewpies were never made in Japan or marked Nippon. .. so she is a mystery, she is definitely a Kewpie with the original sticker on the underfoot.. and she is a Nippon on the back all bisque which are sought after.. as shown in pictures. filed inventory 2601
