Bambi planter [sold]

50s Bambi planterBambi planter
made in Japan c1950s

Another Bambi- I hear you cry- yes indeedy! I do love Bambis.

You can tell the origin of your Bambi by the insect on its back- if it’s a butterfly [as on the cover of this Little Golden Book, printed 1956] it’s an American Bambi. In Australia, Bambis produced by Disney have a lady beetle on their back. I have no idea what market this planter was intended for- that looks to be a lamb on Bambi’s back! A very mixed metaphor.

None-the-less this Bambi is in fine fettle and ready to add to your already burgeoning Bambi collection. It is unmarked, except for the ‘made in Japan’ stamp on the underside.

The Bambi planter is for sale: $AUD35 [Little Golden Book comes free.]
