The black and white of Mickey & Minnie I purchased in Florida 10 years ago, it’s an advertisement for a Disney cartoon. It does not have the name of the cartoon on it but its marked copyright “Walt Disney” (look in lower right Conner. Maybe someone can tell me something more about this.
The second picture is of three separate cartoons that appeared in separate issues of Good Housekeeping in 1937. The first cartoon in the frame is titled “Clock Cleaners” and was in the June 1937 issue. I purchased these on the same trip ten years ago.
The large poster size picture of Mickey and the small picture that accompanies it are actually a child’s game titled “Pin the Tail on Mickey.” It was made by Marks Brothers Co. of Boston Mass. in 1934 by special permission of- “Walt Disney Enterprises.” I purchased this item at auction just a short while ago.
The extra special part here is the framing this, framing was made by a high end frame manufacturing company. The farming was commissioned by Disney Studios exclusively for their own purpose and use. The man who framed the pictures for me buys, in large quantities form this framing manufacturing company and has a personal relationship with the salesmen. He was offered this small amount of left over framing he offered to use it to frame my pictures. It is something that is not available to the general public so it makes my pictures special and worth the extra money. (Look close at the edges of the frames.)
Thanks for looking.
