Adorable 4 1/2" all bisque Kewpie Bride and Groom! What a pair! These adorable German Kewpies are all original, even though the poor groom has lost most of his papermache clothes. The pair are 4 1/2" tall, the groom has the red Germany mark on his back and the bride has numbers incised on her feet. The bride's clothes are made of a soft cotton print with a lace bottom hem and the cap is made of lace with big silk side bows. The clothes are sewn on and the stand is sewn on also. The poor groom has lost most of his black papermache clothes but he still showed up to marry his beloved Kewpie bride, what a guy! The bride has a surface baking line on her crotch and the groom has one blue wing that is smaller than the other, these are in the making.
This is just a darling pair of Kewpies and because of the grooms sad clothing, the pair is very reasonably priced! c. 1900
