Classic Disneyana has actually become a personal enthusiasm of mine. I have actually been looking for it for years now. I go to art auctions frequently, but normally just find classic Disneyana at a little percentage of them.
I discovered a darling 1938 Knickerbocker Mickey Mouse worn a Santa match at an art auction a few years back. This was an extraordinary vintage Disneyana find. There was some extremely great crazing to the face, but no flakes in the paint.
I did some research study after the art auction and it turns out that my vintage Disneyana has quite a history. This toy was a one of a kind Mickey Mouse toy made by Knickerbocker for an outlet store at Christmas and was distributed for a contest. I mored than happy that the beard was real wool fur.
I searched for numerous years at art auctions up until I found a Mad Hatter china teapot. This vintage Disneyana was made in 1951 by Regal for Disney. I always liked Alice in Wonderland and this teapot was really unique to me.
My love of vintage Disneyana runs through great deals of mediums. I buy figurines and paintings and anything else that strikes me as special while I’m at art auctions. If something is truly rare or unusual and still has a whimsical feel to it, I ‘ll try to win it.
I discovered a painting that I fell in love with. It fit with my love of classic Disneyana. The painting was created in 1949 and portrayed the Cinderella castle. It was originally produced for a Disney holiday card. I won the painting for 4 thousand dollars and seemed like I had gotten a lot.
The old Disneyland maps have become extremely pricey pieces of vintage Disneyana. I have been discovering more of the old maps at art auctions, however they are usually not in excellent shape. The best map I have actually discovered was from 1958, which is likewise the year I was born.
The 1958 map of Disneyland was the first one that was made poster sized. The art auction I found this piece of classic Disneyana at had numerous Disney lots up for auction that day. I had not anticipated to find such a fantastic product. This map had actually been stored rolled and had actually never been folded. I paid 2 thousand dollars for it and it deserved every cent.
Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs was my little sibling’s favorite movie when we were kids. I search for vintage Disneyana that includes it when I am art auctions. The very best product I have actually discovered for her was figurines from the 1950s that were of Snow White and six of the seven dwarfs. There was one figurine missing out on, Sneezy.
My child has actually fallen in love with Bambi. She had me buy her the DVD and she has seen it over and over again. I was at an art auction and discovered a nice Bambi figurine while they were auctioning off classic Disneyana. I gave it to her for her last birthday and she states that it is her most prized belongings!
I was surprised at an art auction that I attended that had a wonderful 1930s Mickey Mouse lamp and lampshade. The art auction had not even advertised that they were auctioning classic Disneyana. If they had actually advertised this product, I know that more individuals would have come to the auction. I won the lamp for 5 hundred dollars because I had no competitors.
The most common vintage Disneyana that I find at art auctions is watches. I don’t like watches. I never ever buy any of the Disney watches. I am generally dissatisfied when an art auction markets vintage Disneyana and all they have up for auction is watches.
I purchased an autographed Fantasia album at a classic Disneyana sale. The art auction had a lot of signed and autographed products and Disney products were among them. The signatures on my vintage Disneyana included Walt Disney, Leopold Stokowski (the conductor) and both of the initial animators, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson. This was a great discover for my collection.
