  • Pattern: Kewpie Piano Sitter
  • Vintage:  1950's - 1960's (estimated)
  • Details:  This is such a cute Kewpie doll!  These sitting babies are call Piano Sitters, not sure why, most people don't own pianos, but they can sit just about anywhere and still look super cute.  The realism on the baby's face and expressive eyes got us right away.  After much research, we don't believe this is an original Kewpie, although it has the characteristic sideways glance, it doesn't have the mischievous smile that are the original traits of Kewpie dolls, but it has a sweet little mouth and the eyes beautifully painted!   This one has an added plus, a real satin ribbon on its head, it has two small holes that the ribbon runs through, some say these are "powder shakers" but again, based on research, we think the holes are simply to add ribbon like this one has.  Could it be used as a shaker?  Absolutely!  Remove the ribbon and add a stopper at the bottom and voilà, you have a shaker!  We believe these were molds (moulds?) sold as blanks for people to paint on their own.  There were several different molds, this is the prettiest one we've seen by far.  Great decor for a baby shower, baby's room, New Baby gift, nice collectible too.
