A delightful sterling silver antique baby cupid "Kewpie" charm and dog clip necklace. The charm is stamped with the British Registered Design number RD 633819 on his back which helps date him to 1914 or thereabouts. He comes complete with a 16"/41cm sterling silver trace chain.
Kewpies were baby cupid comic strip characters that became hugely popular in the 1910's and 20's. As universal symbols of love and affection they were featured on cards, jewellery and ornaments.
The charm along with the clip has a drop of 1-3/4" (4.5cm) with Kewpie measuring about 1" tall. Condition is very good with surface wear in keeping with age and the clip is in good working order. There are no hallmarks and we have acid tested to verify sterling silver throughout. This is a hollow charm and very lightweight, the necklace weighs 3 grams in total.
A wonderful piece of antique sentimental silver jewellery, oozing with nostalgia, perfect for adding a love token to your layering necklaces or clip him to your bracelet!
