(Disneyland, 1956-1994) A hand-painted window shutter prop from the Fantasyland Skyway Chalet Station. Disneyland Guests once boarded the Skyway in Fantasyland, entering the ornate and colorfully painted Swiss-style Chalet before ascending the Skyway and enjoying a stunning aerial view of the Park, and pass through the Matterhorn's Glacier Grotto, before disembarking in Tomorrowland. This window decoration is believed to have been installed during the opening of the Chalet and was repainted over the years as needed. The prop was removed during a repair, rehabilitation, or following the closure of the Skyway in 1994. Composed of hand-painted vintage wood with an attached hinged portion of wood on the reverse, the prop measures approximately 9"x30" and is in good condition, with a 2.5" crack along the top edge, some expected fading to the color from age, and some general surface wear throughout.
