Celluloid Deco Bride, Groom,

This vintage cake topper from the 1930s is a celluloid Kewpie wedding couple dressed in crepe paper: he in a formal black cut-a-way with white ribbon bow tie, and she in an ivory pleated crepe paper skirt with satin ribbon sash that ties in the back, and a flower trimmed headband over her net veil. With large googly eyes, she carries a ribbon trimmed wedding bouquet, looking like the cat that ate the canary, while he looks askance with trepidation. The tiny 3-3/8" tall charming chubby cheeked figures are a cross between the Campbell Kids and the Kewpie dolls of the era. The immobile figures have loose, movable arms, with bare feet. The week girl has a maker's mark embossed on her back, but partially covered by her skirt, and I can't decipher it. They are in very nice condition, although part of the girl's right hand is crinkled (not broken). Perfect for your collection, they would also be great for an April, May or June wedding cake! Thank you for stopping by. Please email me if I can help you in any way.
