An incredibly lucky find, an original cast iron trivet with the figure of Mortimer Mouse, c1925. The trivet, having been in a private Disney collection, still has its collection number label on bottom. This pot holder is perfectly functional and it makes for a grand display, for both the trivet and the Disney collectors.
Mortimer was created in the Disney studios by Ub Iwerks, prolific American animator, cartoonist, character designer, inventor and special effects technician. In time, Mortimer's name was changed to Mickey Mouse. The character Mortimer Mouse was re-introduced by Disney Studios in 1936, in Mickey's Rival. In this animated film, the two mice were opposites of one another in both character and physique. Base measurement: 7"W X 7"D; top diameter 5 1/2"; stands 2 1/4"H. In excellent condition! Questions?
