I had 3 different rare and early Bambi pieces -one of them is now sold. I am selling them separately, giving people the option to buy one or two. 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 all three of these together (2 figurines and a plaque) but only this plaque has the complete readable Leonardi 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.This and the other two pieces have an impressed mark along the bottom edge. This says W/22 ( the other figurines I'm offering say W/16 and w/17). This plaque as I said is in very good condition but does have a small chip on the back edge of the piece,and a few minor touch ups in the front where there must have been some minor paint loss. It also has a wire for hanging on the back. These pieces are very rare and should go to a serious collector of Bambi or Disney, they are all truly wonderful.
