An ADORABLE vintage chalkware Kewpie doll money coin bank 1966 mid century figurine / wire rim glasses / AN Brooks / Chicago Illinois / Merchandise Mart. This sweet baby measures just over 11" tall. He is naked as a jay bird except for his yellow wire rim glasses that make him look beyond smart (aside from saving up all those pennies!). The bottom "cheeks" of this little imp have incised lettering- "A.N. Brooks Corp. Merchandise Mart Chicago Illinois U.S.A. 1966 ©" on the left cheek and "To remove money pull cork in base" on the right cheek. On the bottom, there is hand writing in ink, looks like it was given as a gift and this was written for the recipient: "Dec. 25, 1973 Von from Wanda Sherry". There is no longer a cork in the base. Baby is in very good condition with a few flecks of missing paint here and there, pardon the pun, he has been "well babied" and any bit of wear actually adds to the character and is minimal. Kewpie would look so sweet in the nursery or office, and is just plain adorable!
