Disney Goebel DIS 165 - Donald Duck Music Box

Donald Duck from DIS 142 as a music box. This is listed in both the German book and TOMART as an A/B piece, but I have no idea what it looks like. TOMART says that A is the music box and B is Donald.

A new image has surfaced, thanks to my friend Alfred.  It is indeed two pieces.
You wind it up by twisting Donald, then he spins while the music plays.

Disney Goebel DIS 162 - Sneezy Ashtray

Another ashtray based on DIS 005.  Courtesy of my friend Alfred, from the Goebel Archive.  Although, since it does not have any of the 'lips' on which to place your cigarette, this could also be called a dish.  In those days it would've been called a 'pin dish'.

Pluto of DIS 149 as a lamp, photos courtesy of Galerie Laqua, purveyors of fine Disneyana and lots of other cool stuff. They have a great selection of Goebel figures as well as tons of other early Disneyana from Europe and around the world!

Disney Goebel DIS 160 - Tuffy the Orphan Kitten Ashtray

Tuffy from DIS 105 as an ashtray. Gets a little sparse from here on out, lots of holes in what I have pictures of.

UPDATE:  Thanks again to Alfred for supplying this vintage catalog image until one surfaces.

Disney Goebel DIS 152 - Mickey Mouse Display Plaque

This is called a display plaque in both the German book and TOMART, probably used by retailers.

Disney Goebel DIS 149 - Pluto Perfume Spender

These are pretty cool, apparently you'd put some sort of fragrance in these, plug it in, and it would light up and cause the perfume to evaporate into the air.

Disney Goebel DIS 147 - Bambi Ashtray

DIS 013B as an ashtray. Discovered that there is another typo in TOMART, it lists this as ashtray based on DIS 012, which would be Snow White.

Disney Goebel DIS 141 - Bruno

Once again Goebel didn't know who this was. This is clearly Bruno from Cinderella, but labeled as Pluto.

Disney Goebel DIS 140 - Bambi and Fawn

Described as a deer with fawn lying down, probably Bambi and his mother.  Thanks again to Alfred for supplying the image.
