BUG & FLOWER KEWPIES
The Kewpie® Flower & Bug Collection began in 1999 with "Fleur" and "Flit" made exclusively for the 50th Anniversary of the United Federation of Doll Clubs - UFDC.
Like other R. John Wright Kewpies®, these authentic, licensed, Rose O'Neill characters are constructed of the finest all-wool felt which is molded, sewn, stuffed, 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!
Flit was the first of the Kewpie® bugs. He featured a padded chest panel delineated with embroidery thread and separate back panels with dot appliques. Flit wears a close-fitting cap with felt antennae and in one hand he holds a delicately detailed felt flower.
Flit was made in a limited edition of 250 pieces. He came enclosed in a custom-made hinged presentation case with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
