Stunning and rare limited edition platter featuring a wacky modern interpretation of Mickey Mouse by pioneer Disney artist and animator Ward Kimball.  Image originally created for the book "The Art of Mickey Mouse". Plate is numbered and hand signed by the artist.  Stunning glazed color front and gloss black bottom.  

Ward Kimball (1914-2002) first came to the Disney Studios in 1934, worked as an animator on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, developed the character of Jiminy Cricket for "Pinocchio," and was animation supervisor on Dumbo, Fantasia, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, and Peter Pan.

From 1951-1953 Kimball headed an experimental animation group that produced the first 3-D cartoon, "Melody," and the Academy Award(R)-winning "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom," the first cartoon in Cinemascope.
