My Aunt is almost 95 and I believe this was one of her wedding toppers from 1942. They look like Kewpies, but I am not sure. Her sister collected Kewpies for years, so it wouldn't surprise me. Do these have any value as I am trying to sell off my Aunt's estate. Thanks. I did not find any markings. The fabric is in pretty good shape but fragile.

    My referance book. Collecting Rose O'neill's kewpies, written by David O'neill and Janet O'neill Sullivan, in page 30 shows a similar bride and groom made in japan. They are 4" tall, but the bride is on the left-side, the flower is identical. The book has a price of &125-150. Hope this helps.

    Books are great for IDing items, but book price is always but a dream. The completed listings on eBay are the way to go.
