There is also a summertime raffle, jointly sponsored by the Library
and the Historical Society, of a Kewpie doll. (Please see separate
article on this item.)
Kewpie Doll Summer Raffle
The Chichester Town Library and Historical Society have joined
resources to offer a unique summer raffle item: a Kewpie Doll with
hand-crocheted blanket. Kewpie dolls were initially conceived as
comic strip characters by artist and writer Rose O’Neill and began
to gain in popularity around 1909. Although originally made as
paper dolls, they have since been produced of many sizes and
materials as complete dolls. The collectability of Kewpie dolls has
continued throughout the years, even as the popularity of the doll
has waned or gained. The worth of the dolls depend on many things,
as is normal with any collectible.
The doll being offered in the raffle is around 12” tall and is made
of vinyl. It is in very good condition and is dressed in a lacey,
summertime outfit with shoes and socks. The blanket, lovingly made,
has been donated along with the doll. The doll can be seen at the
Library and tickets can be purchased for 3 for $1.
