Beauty and The Beast Belle (with Mirror) He's Really Kind and Gentle He's My Friend - 4020443
NOTES: Gazing tenderly at the image of her beloved Beast as
enchantingly conjured up by the Magic Mirror, Belle
attempts to convince the frightened townspeople that they have
nothing to fear from the seemingly ferocious figure, for the
lovely princess-to-be sees her spellbound Prince through the
eyes of love. As the heroine of a new fairy tale, this bookish
beauty was celebrated as a new kind of Disney leading lady.
"We tried to make Belle more European looking with fuller
lips, darker eyebrows and slightly smaller eyes,"
revealed co-supervising animator James Baxter. ï`sheï`s also.
more worldly because sheï`s always reading." Plussed with
pewter hands, legs and the lock of hair Belle so endearingly
brushes back throughout the film, this graceful sculpture
reflects the artistry of Beauty and the Beast in celebration of
the animated classicï`s 20th anniversary.

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.
