1930s Mickey And Minnie Mouse Porcelain Figurines Owned By Walt Disney Himself For Sale
I previously listed this item as a buy it now and had many watchers and a lot of interest. There is on this. Don't miss out on this opportunity!!!Up for your consideration is a 1930s Mickey and Minnie Mouse Porcelain Figurines Owned by Walt Disney Himself! This very rare find is truly a one of a kind collectible. The two figurines were a gift from Walt Disney to Rudy Vallee(famous 1930's musician) in the last half of 1936. Rudy Vallee was a close personal friend of Walt Disney and his brother. Rudy was a very big fan of Mickey Mouse so Walt gave these to him as a gift. When Rudy Vallee passed away in 1986 his wife Eleanor was left with the estate. In 1988 she sold this unique pair to Suzette Wills of Santa Ana, CA. Then many years later it was put into a private sale where I purchased it. Included with the two figurines is a signed letter from Rudy's wife, Eleanor Vallee, confirming that the figurines were the property of Walt Disney and her late husband, Rudy Vallee. The letter comes on original Rudy Vallee letterhead on good quality paper. Eleanor Vallee has written a memoir about Rudy titled, "My Vagabound Lover." She still does book signings making her signature easy to authenticate. There is no doubt that this is the real deal. I will also provide a letter from myself stating that the pair is genuine and the name of the sale that I purchased them from. This will give you a paper trail all the way back to Rudy proving their authenticity. I will guarantee the full authenticity of this piece. The buyer will have 30 days to provide "substantial" proof that the piece is not authentic from a reputable source. Buy with confidence! My wife will probably kill me when she finds out I have put this up for sale. She is a Disney fanatic and this has become one of our prized possessions. But I am always looking for the next neat item and I would love for someone else to enjoy having it as much as I have. It is a fantastic conversation piece that leaves most people speechless. The condition of these figurines is superb. The colors are bright and the surface is glossy. There is some crazing which is expected on pieces of this age, but there are no chips or cracks on either one. The letter came in a frame, but I would prefer to ship it without the glass to prevent damage. If the buyer wants the frame it can be arranged. This is a one of a kind item that could top off even the finest of Disneyana collections. I have had many people tell me that they believe these are worth far more than what I am asking, but I wanted to price to sell. Don't miss out on this opportunity! Payment by PayPal is expected at the time of purchase. I usually ship out as soon as I receive cleared payment. This will be packaged extremely well and will be fully insured. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks for looking and don't miss out!
