Christmas in July- Kewpies!

Kewpies

This is the only Kewpie card in my collection, and I absolutely love it! Many people often mistake Nimble Nicks as Kewpies, but they are not! Rose O’Neill wasn’t only the creators of Kewpies, she was also a sculptor and author. The Bonniebrook Gallery, Museum, and Homestead in Missouri has O’Neill’s recreated Ozarks mansion and a Kewpie museum and art gallery.

Most Kewpie cards I have looked at are selling online for $20+. I got this card on eBay, I don’t recall for how much. The postmark is not readable, but it is circa 1920.
