Here's a different rare and early Bambi piece. I have another Bambi by the same maker that I have listed separately. This piece is a plaque 10" in diameter of Bambi and his mother. This figure was made in Italy and has a stamp on the back saying "by Leonardi Ltd by permission of Walt Disney - Mickey Mouse". I got this plaque and the Bambi figurine (listed separately) at the same time - this plaque has the complete more readable Leonardi mark of the two. This Bambi with her Mom is made of hand colored plaster and is in incredibly good condition. It's beautifully executed and clearly early - made at the time of the Bambi Premier in the 1940's. It has an impressed mark along the bottom edge. It reads W/22 for the item number. This plaque is in very good vintage condition, but does have a small chip on the back edge of the piece, and a few very minor touch ups on the front. It also has a wire for hanging on the back.
This piece is very rare and should go to a serious collector of Bambi or Disney, it is truly wonderful.
