Here comes the bride....and groom.  A charming movable arms celluloid Kewpie dolls dress in wedding attire.  The 8-1/2" tall dolls seem large for cake toppers, possibly more for setting on the cake table.   

Dating from the 1930's, the bride is dress in a white satin dress trimmed with fabric flowers.  Her long tulle veil, edged with ribbon, is also trimmed with flowers and a garland head piece.  A flower bouquet is attached to her wrist.  The groom is dressed in a black tux, white satin shirt and bow tie.  Straight pins are used to resemble buttons on his shirt front.  He wears a cardboard top hat.  The feet of both dolls has a Japanese label.

Condition of the dolls are excellent. At least I found no breaks, dents, or nicks to either doll.  The cardboard top hat does show some creases etc. The groom does have a couple of straight pins pushed into the back of the head.  These pins may have been placed to keep the hat more secure. 

Looking for a vintage look for a wedding reception.  How cute would these dolls be?
