    Found this cutie today. Appears to be a composition or plaster type of material.
    The Kewpie doll has glued-on brown hair. The arms move but the legs are fused as one piece on a black stand.
    There is a hole on the top of the head. I don't know if that is damage or part of the manufacturing process. The hair covers it.
    No marks that I could find.
    Approximately 12 inches.
    Does anyone recognize the maker? or Age?
    Your comments and feedback is welcome.
    Thx
