I had 3 different rare and early Bambi pieces - one of them is now sold. They are by the same company with Disney authorization. I am selling them separately, giving people the option to buy one or both. This 5 1/2"" tall Bambi. This figure was made in Italy by Leonardi Ltd "by permission of Walt Disney Mickey Mouse". I got all three of these together (2 figures and a plaque) but only the plaque I've listed has the complete readable Leonardi mark.However, this figure does have a similar mark but although it's rubbed I can tell, having looked at the mark on the plaque, it is the same mark. They are all hand colored plaster pieces in incredibly good condition. They are beautifully executed and clearly early - made at the time of the Bambi Premier in the 1940's. All three pieces have an impressed mark along the bottom edge, this one says W/17. These pieces are very rare and should go to a serious collector of Bambi or Disney, they're really wonderful.
