(Disneyland, c.1960s) An original hand-sculpted maquette of the scared dog that accompanies the caretaker in the graveyard scene of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. The maquette is constructed of modeling clay over a wire armature and metal foot supports, hand-painted and finished in intricate detail. While the color palette of the dog has changed over time within the attraction, his familiar body position, with his tail between his legs, worried expression, and right foot back, has remained nearly identical to this model throughout the years. The maquette is presented on a custom, faux greenery-covered circular pedestal base. A custom glass covering with a thematically appropriate bat finial protects the piece. Measuring 3.5"x3", including the metal supports, the dog is in good to very good condition, with some chipping and wear from production use. The case measures 8.5" tall.
