This wedding cake topper was bought from Neiman Marcus, and we believe it’s from the 1930s.

This particular topper is made from plaster; the bride wears a tulle veil, with an arch of cut cloth flowers. Demand grew for similar matrimonial figurines in the 1920s. These early wedding cake figures could be made out of such things as wax, celluloid, plaster, paper, porcelain, etc.
