VTT - Kewpie Postcard & Tea Set

The little Kewpie on my postcard is ringing in the New Year. The postcard is signed by Rose O'Neill and is postmarked 1923.

The Kewpie tea set belonged to my mother when she was a child. The pieces that are decorated with Prussian soldier Kewpies are marked "Copyrighted Rose O'Neill Wilson, Kewpie, Germany." The saucers have the same pink border as the other pieces but are not decorated. They are marked Leuchtenburg Germany.

My tea set is missing some pieces. There is an auction picture showing a "Rose O'Neill Child's 15 piece Pink Lusterware Tea Set" that includes a sugar bowl and six cups here.

I'm participating in Vintage Thingie Thursday
