A LITTLE GIRL AND HER WOODEN DOLL IN PARIS, FRANCE

This vintage photograph features and adorable little girl sitting on a wall and holding her doll for all to see. I know very little about dolls, but, this one seems to be made out of wood. This photo was taken at a studio in Paris, France. The photographer was E. Chapuis. Preliminary research yielded no biographical information about Mr. Chapuis but he appears to have been a prolific photographer based on the number of his photos that are in the hands of collectors. This photograph measures about 2 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER KEWPIE DOLL (1926-1940’s)

clluloid flapper This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl, seated on a bench, and holding a little doll. The doll appears to be a kewpie doll. Kewpie is a brand of doll which was modeled after a comic strip character created by cartoonist Rose O’Neill in 1909. The doll had a similar appearance to cupid. In 1912 the first kewpie doll appeared and it was a bisque doll. Later, the dolls were made of composition (1920’s), celluloid (1930’s and 1940’s), and later plastic kewpies made their appearance. A person knowledgable about dolls, told me that the doll seen in this photograph is made of celluloid. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the photograph was taken sometime between 1926 and the 1940’s. This photo postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).   (SOLD)
