The Artist Proof #1 set of Easter Bonnet Kewpies now being offered for the first time ever! These little darlings are rare and the only set available from the RJW Archives.
The Kewpie Easter Collection was the first of the "Holiday-themed" series of authentic Rose O'Neill Kewpie characters. Like other R. John Wright Kewpies, the Kewpies in the Easter collection were constructed of the finest all-wool felt which is completely molded and delicately hand-painted. Standing 6" tall, each is five-way jointed for poseability and include the trademark tiny blue Kewpie wings on the shoulders. These are the perfect 'cabinet-size' Kewpies!
The series included the adorable three "Easter Bonnet" Kewpies. A trio of cuties wearing extravagant bonnets made of the finest all-wool felt, pure silk, and organdy. The Blue Bonnet charmer has a plethora of felt flowers and tulle on her picturebook hat and she also wears a dainty pair of white gloves.
The Bonnet Kewpies were produced in 2002 in a limited edition of 250 pieces. Each came enclosed in her deluxe RJW presentation box along with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
The purchase price includes shipping & insurance in the domestic United States. For overseas shipping rates, please contact the RJW office. You may also place your order request via phone at 1-802-447-7072. All orders are subject to availability.
