This adorable Disney bisque figurine is of the lovable Ferdinand the Bull, sniffing his bouquet of flowers.

Stamped into his right side, Ferdinand and Disney

Stamped Japan on the bottom

Made in the late 1930s.

Measures: about 3" tall

This has minor surface wear across his back shoulders, but this is in otherwise remarkable condition. There is a pre-fire crack in his left ear, it does not go through the ear to the other side and does not affect the integrity of the piece at all.

The Story of Ferdinand (1936) is the best known work written by American author Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson. The children's book tells the story of a bull who would rather smell flowers than fight in bullfights.

In 1938 the story was adapted by Walt Disney as a short animated film entitled Ferdinand the Bull in a style similar to his Silly Symphonies series (and sometimes considered an unofficial part of that series). Ferdinand the Bull won the 1938 Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons).

Thanks to Wikipedia for the background information.
