Sprite of Spring - DISPRITEMAQ
NOTES: Maquettes are three-dimensional character models, animators study in order to render their subjects more realistically in two dimensions. Similar to model sheets, maquettes provide reference for all animators, in-betweeners and clean-up artists. This enables them to render a specific character with consistency. .

WALT DISNEY CLASSICS FIGURINES - The Classics Collection started in 1992 with three scenes, Bambi, Cinderella, and Fantasia's Sorcerer Apprentice. Many other series have since been introduced. Some figurines are limited, and some have been retired. Some of these figurines have risen high on the secondary market. The figurines are made of porcelain, and the process is similar to that use to make Hummel figurines. Individual pieces are molded, put together, and fired in an oven. Then they are painted and fired again. Each figurine is marked on the bottom, signifying the year it was produced. The marks represent significant milestones in Disney history. The figurines with the first year mark are usually the most desirable.
