Christmas Toy Soldier Costume Head

Above:  The first version of the Disney toy soldier costume head featured mustache-like openings under the nose for visibility as
seen in these photos from the 1970s (above left) and the 1960s (above right).
Click any image for a larger view.

Above:  We know this head is from the original mold (or molded off an original head) because of the exact match of the detailing
on the gold chinstrap (left) compared to the a photo of a 1970's toy soldier in the Disney Christmas Parade (right).  Every kink in the "chain" matches.

A "Babes in Toyland" style head cast from the early 1960s Disneyland mold.  The famous Disney marching Toy Soldiers first appeared in a Christmas parade at Disneyland around 1961 to celebrate their appearance in the Annette Funicello movie "Babes in Toyland" released that same year.  Since then they have been a delightful fixture in Disneyland's and Walt Disney World's Christmas parades.  The design of the costumes has changed subtly over the years.  The first version of the head featured solid, painted eyes, with the performer seeing through mustache-like slits below the nose.  Later versions featured eyes of mesh that allowed visibility, and the most modern version also features carefully disguised screen cutouts along the chin strap for additional vision and ventilation.  Offered here is the 1960s style soldier head.  He's a bit of a mystery:  We know from matching the sculptural details of the chinstrap that he was made from the official Disneyland mold (or a mold created from an official Disney head).  Judging from the rough finish and various crude coats of paint (his hat was originally painted blue under the red) it appears someone created him for unofficial use outside of Disneyland.  The head is outfitted with a helmet liner to allow it to be worn just like his official Disney counterparts.  He is one of several that came to us with no history other than being found in storage.  This toy soldier costume head measures approximately 27.5" tall (same as you see at the Disney parks) and is constructed of Fiberglas and is painted crudely, with plenty of scuffs and rubbed paint as shown in the photos (click on any photo for a larger view).  To be clear, I don't think this is an official Disney head but this is only the second time in 25 years I've been able to offer a Disney toy soldier costume head produced from the Disney theme park head or molds.  We have several of these heads-- all in similar condition-- but the photos above are of the exact one being offered now.  Instead of being priced near $10,000 as an original, this one is priced at a fraction of that as a rare replica made from the original 1960's Disneyland sculpt.  Item # 7050, $1495

Autographs of 25 Famous Disney Artists
Including Ub Iwerks!
Above:  Stock image of Disney Studio 1940s.
 
Above: A fantastic collection of Disney's renowned artists, signed on animation paper (with the Management Bond watermark, the paper used by the Disney Studio during Walt Disney's day).  The alphanumeric designations are possibly the floor and room locations for these artists at Disney's Burbank Studio.  Walt Disney's office, for example, was 3H.

Autographs of 25 Disney Artists
From the Studio's Golden Era of Classic Animation!

Ub ("Ubbe") Iwerks
 
was considered by many to be Walt Disney's oldest friend, and spent most of his career with Disney. They worked together at the Pesmen-Rubin Art Studio in Kansas City, and eventually took up animation. In 1922, when Disney began his Laugh-O-Gram cartoon series, Iwerks joined him as chief animator. The studio went bankrupt, however, and in 1923 Iwerks followed Disney's move to Los Angeles to work on a new series of cartoons known as “the Alice Comedies” which had live action mixed with animation. Iwerks then worked on Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and eventually Mickey Mouse.
  The first few Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphonies cartoons were animated almost entirely by Iwerks, including Steamboat Willie and The Skeleton Dance. Iwerks parted ways with Disney in the 1930's, but returned a decade later, working mainly on developing special visual effects. He is credited as developing the processes for combining live action and animation used in Song of the South (1946), as well as the xerographic process adapted for cel animation. He also worked at WED Enterprises, now Walt Disney Imagineering, helping to develop many Disney theme park attractions during the 1960s. Iwerks did special effects work outside the studio as well, including his Academy Award nominated achievement for Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds (1963).

Walt Disney's Daughter Called Phil Sears' Museum Contribution
"One of the Most Valuable Things Our Museum Can Offer to Our Visitors."

The late Diane Disney Miller left a lasting legacy with-- among other achievements-- The Walt Disney Family Museum.  Phil Sears is honored that a Walt Disney letter from his collection is a star exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  Diane Disney Miller said:

"This is such an important letter, and to be able to display the original, in my dad's hand, is, to me, one of the most valuable things our museum can offer to our visitors.  When I first discovered this letter I was so touched by it .. the very young Walt, practically penniless, living with his uncle and working out of his uncle's garage, but presenting himself as an established producer offering an opportunity to Mrs. Davis' little daughter.  I'm certain that the absurdity of his situation never occurred to him, just the possibilities that it presented.  He had confidence in his own ability, and had just persuaded his brother Roy to join with him.  This was the beginning of something wonderful."

You can see the letter in person at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, or click HERE for a virtual view.

The 1993 limited edition cel titled "Walt's Train" released and sold out immediately 26 years ago! 
This is a limited edition of 950 hand-painted character cels combined with a photograph taken in 1951 of Walt Disney on his newly built miniature railroad at the Disney Studio in Burbank, California.  This cel set-up, "Walt's Train," features Walt Disney along with Mickey Mouse who assumes the role of engineer as Minnie, Donald and Goofy join the both of them in a aftemoon train ride. Donald's nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie run happily alongside. All aboard!!!

Disney artists at the Walt Disney Studios created these cels using traditional animation techniques. The original drawings, which were specially created for this edition and then conserved at
Disney Art Editions, were transferred to acetate "cels" by a special six-step xerographic process. Disney artists then hand-painted each of the cels in the edition with Disney-approved acrylic colors.  The photographic background for this cel set-up has been produced using the original black-and-white negative, which has been conserved at the Disney Photo Library.

This is #630 of 950.  Includes the Disney Company Certificate of Authenticity.  Measures 23" x 19" overall.  In new condition.
