ITEM: You are offerding on a hand signed and 100% guaranteed authentic and dating to 1939 - 1940 (so very early), Walt Disney autograph displayed with a framed and matted behind glass original C. 1941 Hormel Calendar print also by Walt Disney. This was sent by Walt Disney to a young collector named Emily Pratt Hall - a crisp signature on a card stock paper. Framed with an action packed lithograph featuring Mickey Mouse leading the band of all his old pals! From Daffy Duck, to Goofy, this image has it all.A fantastic example housed in a handsome gold finished wood frame, we think this is a sensational presentation.
Last year about this time - Grapefruit Moon Gallery acquired an important collection of pen & ink original illustration art comic drawings from many of the leading Golden Age of Illustration comic strip illustrators that were received by a persistent young girl named Emma Pratt Hall who lived in Mansfield Mass. She wrote many fan letters requesting doodles from her favorite comic artists of the era, nearly one hundred artists honored her requests. These are all from the years of 1939 - 1940 and many have letters that accompany the drawings. It really is amazing the response she received this collection is outstanding. I would guess she was a persuasive letter writer and by the personalized content of many of the letters she was likely a young girl. Her comic art collection gained her some recognition as she received a press newspaper mention from a Sheffield England newspaper that is not included in this sale - but we included a scan of it the bottom of the listing as reference and provenance. Frame measures 17 1/2" x 22 1/2" with a window size of approximately 12 3/4" x 14."
As always is 100% guaranteed vintage and original as always from GrapefruitMoonGallery.
Here is some press the young collector attained in the day when she was acquiring these autographs - for provenance only the press clip is not included in the sale
CONDITION: This original Walt Disney signature / autograph and framed lithograph is in very fine condition with a slight ripple to the top margin, the frame is in very fine condition with some light surface wear and needs a back hanging wire. Displays beautifully.
