This Kewpie Doll belongs to a very good friend of mine. He does not know much about it. It is believed to have belonged to his ancestors. The only marking it has a round metal piece about the size of a dime, is stamped Patented and Copyrighted 1913. We believe it may be German? but not sure as the wording is english that is stamped on it. My friend does not know much about his ancestors or exactly where they came from only they came to US in early 1900's and believes this doll make have made the journey with them. We would love to know any info or any sites we may go to learn more. Height of doll is 6", at widest point is the head 2 1/2", it is also solid bisque or porcelain.
