Here is a large vintage 1970s Kewpie doll, 14 inches tall made of vinyl, a jointed cute old Kewpie with starfish hands and sweet little wings and wearing only a velvet bow. I have never come across a vinyl Kewpie of that making so tall!
Kewpie may be a cute and funny addition to every collection, fine to start one or just to sit in your favourite place at home to make you smile every time you look at it!
Old Kewpie measures 36 cm / 14 inches tall standing. Its sturdy vinyl shows no signs of age and wear, it has only two small spots on the back of its head, and the overall condition is excellent!
Kewpie dolls and figurines, first designed 1911 by Rose O’Neill, were extremely popular in the early twentieth century. They were first produced 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’ 1970s vinyl Kewpie has just the same magic!
Please, be aware this listing is for the large vintage Kewpie ONLY – all other items you see in the photographs will NOT come with the old Kewpie doll! (The smaller one seen in the last photo is also available in our store!)
*Please notice: This vintage Kewpie doll does not belong into the hands of children; it may not fulfill the safety standards for toys nowadays! So, this is not a children’s toy, though an adult collector’s item for decoration & display only!
