Kewpie Doll 10cm
Kewpie dolls are based on comical strip-like illustrations by Rose O'Neill that appeared in Ladies' Home Journal in 1909. The small dolls were extremely popular in the early 1900s. Their name, often shortened to "Kewpies", is derived from "cupid", the Roman god of beauty and non-platonic love. The Kewpie doll was mentioned in Anne Frank's diary. She received one on her first St. Nicholas Day in the Annex from Miep and Bep.
This soft vinyl Kewpie Doll is made in Japan & 10cm tall.
