(Old King Cole, c. 1935) An incredibly rare (in size, design, and condition) matched pair of Mickey and Minnie Mouse store displays by Old King Cols Inc. This large and impressive display pair, are certain to become the centerpiece of any Disney collection. All Old King Cole Disney displays are rare and desirable, however finding a matching working pair in this condition is almost unheard of. Each display has its original wood bracing and framework attached to reverse. Motors and electric cords have been professionally replaced with modern devices and hardware and all mechanical features function well. Mickey is 30"x40.75" while Minnie is 28.75"x42". Attached to the reverse of each is the original Kay Kamen "seal" sticker, measuring 2.5" in diameter. Mickey's sticker shows moderate wear with about half remaining while Minnie's sticker remains nearly fully intact. Lower left of each display is also marked "Copyright By Special Permission Of Walt Disney Enterprises." Mickey is depicted wearing red pants with blue buttons, and his outstretched arm moves up and down. Minnie holds a mirror in her outstretched hand, and her other arm is a separate piece that moves up and down. Each has scattered areas of crazing with some small scattered paint flakes, all minor and in no way distracting. Both displays remain very clean and are in fine condition overall.
