Auction #201 - Part II
Item numbers 1409 through 3152 in auction 201
8” tall with flexible rubber head covering that has plastic eye lenses with metal rims, fabric-covered elastic head straps and metal filter base. Comes in original cardboard box with text on top flap, attached carrying strap. c. 1941. One of the most unusual Mickey items and an eerie reflection of the time, created due to the outbreak of WWII and desire to keep kids safe while in a kid-friendly way. English manufacturer Happynak (known for their Disney sand pails) also produced a gas mask carrying canister which is quite rare. A totally different Mickey gas mask was created in the US. Lid text includes “The Special Respirator For A Small Child Is Government Property.” Box has moderate aging and staple rust on one side. Fine. Rubber mask remains quite pliable but has all-over dust soiling and aging. Metal base has few traces of oxidation. Fine. Rare with box. Our last example sold for $486.
