Kewpie dolls and figurines, first designed by Rose O’Neill in 1909, were extremely popular in the early twentieth century. They were first produced 1911 in Ohrdruf, a small town in Germany, then famous for its toy manufacturers. Their name, often shortened to "Kewpies", is derived from "cupid", the Roman god of beauty and – as Eros is the Greek version of Cupid – erotic love. The early dolls, especially signed or bisque, are highly collectible! But even such a comparatively ‘young’ 1980s vinyl Kewpie has just the same magic!
