30s Mickey Mouse

1930s Mickey Mouse napkin ringMickey Mouse napkin ring
made in Japan 1930s

How fabulous is this hand-painted Mickey Mouse napkin ring? Here he is in his early Disney rendering- all rat-like but with his trademark big ears. Mickey first appeared in 1928 [in Steamboat Willie] and this napkin ring was made not soon after.

I found Mickey in a collector’s sale lot of napkin rings and bought the lot because Mickey was there. Mickey is in great condition with only a little wear to the hand-painting on his extremities- ears and nose. He is very collectible- as is any vintage Mickey Mouse item. Mickey’s from the 30s and 40s are now highly sought after.

Mickey is shown here with a bakelite spice canister and a sweet tin from the 30s…they were made in Australia but since Mickey is a universal icon, I don’t think that matters. Mickey is for sale: $AUD75

Mickey & Minnie & a Mousekeeter

Minnie and Mickey Mouse, c50s-60sMinnie Mouse hand puppet, made in Korea 1960s
Mickie Mouse squeaky toy, made in England 1950s

Minnie Mouse hand puppet, made by Walt Disney Productions, Ohio and Mickey Mouse squeaky toy, made by Combex in England [#1499.] Minnie’s head is moulded plastic, while her puppet body is printed cloth. Mickey, meanwhile, is all plastic, but his squeaker is somewhat defunct.

The two are greeted by a later ring-in- a Mousekeeter; a reproduction from the 90s made under license to Disney. I like the way they are all three gesturing salutations.  As you are eminently aware, ANYTHING Mickey Mouse related is now totally collectible.

Minnie and Mickey are in good vintage condition and are for sale: $AUD55 [and if you like the Mousekeeter, let me know.]
