Switzerland "Alpine Climber" From It's A Small World. Retired 10/09. - 1235209
NOTES: Mountain Goat's Horns & Hoofs: Painted with metallic paint. Particulars: The doll-like children are composed of porcelain. For the introductions of the Disney's "it's a small world" after all sculptures, all new packaging has been designed featuring artwork reminiscent of the original attraction and new Certificates of Authenticity. Sculpture bears "Disney's it's a small world after all" logo. The Swiss Boy has an incised production mark vs. the blue decal. The blue decal vs. being incised is used when the base is too small for an imprinted mark. WDAC will continue to use both types of production marks depending on the requirements of each piece. The Swiss Boy is packaged with only one Certificate of Authenticity (COA)..

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.
