(Disney, c.1957) An original propeller created by Rolly Crump from the eraser clip of a Blackwing 602 pencil. This vintage propeller was the simplest and first version that was created by Rolly, using only the eraser clip and a pin with which to balance it on. Rolly would have propellers like these spinning around his desk in the air conditioning of the Disney Studio. From this first style of propeller, Rolly would go on to create more elaborate versions which would impress Walt Disney and lead to his eventual career at WED Imagineering. This eraser clip propeller measures 1.25" long and is in very good condition.
