1st Disney Studio Christmas card - 1930

Thanks to my friend Gunnar Andreassen for the heads-up on this great Christmas card currently up for auction at Hake's Americana.

According to the auction description, the card measures 4 1/2 by 6 inches. The reverse is blank.

The illustration was created by legendary Disney newspaper strip artist Floyd Gottfredson, and was apparently the first piece of Gottfrdson's work to be reproduced in color. Hake's claims there are just two examples of this card known to exist.

What a great way to end the year! A little late for Christmas, but what a super find! Thanks Gunnar!
