Set of vintage wedding cake toppers. The bride, the groom and the preacher. Made of bisque in Japan, probably in the 1920’s.
These must have been most precious to someone. I found them carefully packed away in a cedar chest along with other life momentos. The groom’s head was broken and glued back together. Apparently, the bride had to hit him on the head with a rolling pin to get him to the alter. There is still a hole in the top of his head. Please see the close-up pictures.
The bride and preacher have no chips, but their cold paint is wearing as can be expected in bisque of this age.
They are 4-1/2″ tall. Made in Japan. The bride has “Japan” in black letters on the bottom. The preacher has “Japan” in red letters. The groom has “Japan” in red letters on the bottom as well as raised lettering, “Made In Japan – C241” on his upper back.
