(Disneyland, c.1960s-70s) A charming gold-painted rotating fiberglass flower prop from the facade of the "It's a Small World" attraction at Disneyland. This prop features design elements implimented by Imagineer Rolly Crump for use at the 1964-65 World's Fair which were later incorporated into the attraction for its debut at Disneyland. According to a Disneyland souvenir book printed in 1973, "for weather durability and unexcelled beauty, 22 karat gold-leaf was used for trim throughout the facade. When domestic supplies of gold leaf ran low, Disney engineers secured a European shipment to finish the job, thus adding another "international" touch while creating a striking contrast of gold textures". This flower prop would rotate along with the other moving parts of the "Small World" building structure. This prop measures approximately 24" in diameter, and is in good condition with some wear along the edges and spots of scuffing from use.
