1930s Disney Mickey & Minnie Mouse Nursery Mat

The scarce child’s Mickey Mouse mat or rug, depicting the cartoon characters of Mickey and Minnie ice skating to a gold ground, being Italian in origin under license from Disney and surviving from the 1930s in good overall order.

The piece is in good overall order considering the material and age. Some of the fringing is lacking as photographed. There are no holes, repairs or tears.

The character’s public debut was in Steamboat Willie, which appeared in 1928 and was one of the first cartoons with synchronised sound. By the mid-30s, largely because of The Mickey Mouse Club, Mickey had developed into a role model for children. This piece was part of a wave of the earliest merchandise and is now highly prized. Noted Disneyana experts Hake’s Americana valued a similar rug for $800-1200 in 2005

A rare collector’s piece with a nice Christmassy feel which could easily be wall hung.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
