Serious Toyz™ Vintage Toy & Collectible Auction #58
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
"Micky" (Mouse) Posable Wood Figure, 1926, Performo Toy, 4.75", painted wood & cloth covered wire w/ decal on chest; this is an unusual figure that once had (but is NOT present) a paper label at bottom of foot that read: ”MICKY TRADE MARK Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Pat. Aug. 17, 1926" (we know about the label because we once sold one w/ the label present); the patent is real, & this date predates Disney’s Mickey by several years; although it is likely that this toy was modeled after “Krazy Kat’s Ignatz Mouse", unproven ‘urban legend’ says Walt Disney based his “Mickey Mouse” on this toy!; there is a small dried drip in white paint at end of his nose on right side; C8.5 w/ very minor wear spots; an intriguing early figure. (Note: we will also include a reproduction of the missing foot label).
