For a short period of time in the 1930s Disney produced these exceptional silkscreen posters. They were produced in two sizes: 60 x 40 in. and 40 x 30 in. Owing to their fragility very few are known to have survived.


To-date no other example of this poster is known to have survived.


This Mickey Mouse short film was one (number 86) of a series of animated short films produced by Walt Disney Productions that begun in 1928 with Steamboat Willie and finished in 1953 with The Simple Things. Four extra shorts were released between 1983 and 2013. In this short film Mickey, Donald and Pluto go mountain climbing in the Swiss Alps, but as you would image, they do not have an uneventful hike, and get into all sorts of trouble along the way !

Frame: Tulip wood and UV plexiglass


Very good condition with the colours remaining very bright. There are small restored chips to the edges, and areas of the white background, that do not affect the main image.
