Design Registration Number 92187. Circa early 1950’s. Rare old “Christmas Kewpie” doll made of celluloid by the Oriental Company of Japan, circa the early 1950’s. This hard-to-find collectible doll is in wonderful vintage preowned condition; there are tiny wings on the upper back, the original stringing is still in the arms but it’s loose, the jacket pants belt and mittens are still with the doll, the tiny metal snaps are still attached to the jacket, there’s a tiny hole in the jacket where the Kewpie heart patch was attached, no boots and no hat, there are several soiled areas to the doll including the back of the lower legs (see photos) , there are some soiled areas and loose stitches to the clothing, there’s a faint hairline separation to seam of legs, and the doll and the clothing should be gently cleaned to look their very best. This vintage collectible has been kept in a smoke free environment. Since it’s been in my possession. I can’t say how it was stored prior to that.
