Dutch Kissing Couples

One of the most famous kissing couples in the world, the Dutch kissing couple! It is a very nice gift for a wedding. Everyone who have visited the Netherlands remembers them, the Dutch kissing couple. In the last years it has become a true symbol of Dutch love. It has a typical Dutch appearance through Dutch clothes, and everyone loves love. 

There is not much information about the origin of the traditional kissing couple. Some say this picture of Jan & Grietje was the inspiration for the figurines. The kissing kids picture was taken in Volendam, North Holland around 1920. Probably a souvenir merchant has seen this picture and inspired him to make the first kissing couple figurines. In every region of the Netherlands the traditional costumes look different. Altough most figurines have got the Volendam costumes, there is a wide variation in costumes among the kissing couple figurines. In every region of the Netherlands the traditional costumes look different.
