(Disneyland, c.1970s) A charming gold-painted fiberglass flower prop from the facade of the "It's a Small World" attraction at Disneyland. According to a souvenir book printed in 1973, this flower prop was painted with actual 22 karat gold-leaf. The section states, "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. This item measures 15"x15" and 2" thick, and is in good condition with some scuffing from use.
