Rescued this little darling , and wondered if it's actually a Kewpie doll. It's vinyl, 7 1/2 inches tall, and I can find no maker's mark on it.

    She is a Kewpie look a like doll from 70's -90's . Look on bottom of feet to see if country is marked there ?
    Looks much like Taiwan version or Japan . Let me know if you see anything on bottom of feet . She is not a authorized Kewpie by companies that hold permission , Cameo at moment . Interesting she had blue wings like antique bisque and composition ones .

    Sorry wings are green I missed that which concludes it is just a copy of Rose O'Neills Kewpie .

    I wondered if it was a real Kewpie, I even looked it over with a magnifying glass, and it has no marks at all, which I found strange. I did see in the article that some Kewpies weren't marked at all, so I wondered if it might be genuine or, as you said, a copy. thanks for your reply!

    The very early bisque Kewpies were sometimes not marked or paper label fell off . All vinyl were marked . He is just a very cute look a like :-) Thanks for sharing him
