(Disneyland, 1965) A very rare, wrought iron suspension bracket, sign and frame from the original New Orleans Square in 1965. This sign hung in Disneyland from 1965 to sometime into the early 1990s. The location was originally the La Boutique D’Or”shop and sometime in the 1970s, the business was re-themed as the Masqarade shop. The signs were changed at that point. This was purchased directly from the estate of a park supervisor. It is most probable that the iron bracket frame dates from a much earlier period than ’65 as it is well documented that the WED art directors were sent to New Orleans with the purpose of securing vintage architectural salvage from the city for aged authenticity in the new themed land. This quality and apparently very old iron sign was part of that acquisition. See the period photo from the 1960s taken from an actual slide in the collection. Note the white paint drip on the lower bracket of the crest frame that matches the marking on the actual piece today. Very heavy.
