Customer Question

I have a Kewpie doll that belong to my mother in law. It is fairly large and has what appears to have human hair. She is made of a material that is flaking. I'm not sure how to preserve her. Could she be one of the prototypes made in Germany? My MIL had passed away before I found her in an attic. Sue
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable.
Customer: So, can I send a picture of her? Or, is there an appraiser I can take her to?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: She has kewpie on her neck. Her hair is very long.
