Film - Warming Up - 1928

 1928 Film "Warming Up" Richard Dix, Jean Arthur
I've blogged about this photo before, but I found the movie overture, below, on YouTube.

Notice, that this "Cubeb" is not the smoker or the "kissing" type. I wonder if the crew, handling the props, painted this or if this version existed. So far, I have not seen one like this.

According to ads I've seen, these dolls were called, "Charleston Girl" by Manhattan Novelty and Gift Company or "The Parisienne" by Konroe Merchants or "Felt Doll M617" by Kindel and Graham. Collectors refer to these smokers as "Cubeb."
