1920s Vintage Cake Topper
I imagine these lovebirds long ago sat upon a 6-tiered wedding cake at a soiree so black tie it would make Gatsby green with envy. The groom is holding a black top hat and has a white bow tie. The bride is wearing a mesh veil and carrying a bouquet of white flowers. The two are standing upon a decorated pedestal which is adorned with fabric flowers. While the pedestal has become slightly discolored, I think the variance creates a patina that can only be achieved with the ages - it gives it character and a history that you won't find on new cake toppers. If the coloring really bothers you, it would be incredibly easy to touch up with some white paint. You can also easily remove the fabric flowers if they don't suit you. I think these cuties are made of chalk but I'm not positive and I would guess that they date back to the 1920s or 1930s but again, I can't be sure as they are not marked. The couple measures 5 inches tall. The base measures 3 inches deep and 3.5 inches wide.
