Fairies: Summer's Twilight, Autumn's Dawn - 4025904
In creating the "Nutcracker Suite" sequence
for Fantasia, Walt Disney told his filmmakers,
"It should be something beautiful and something
fantastic", adding that he wanted a "a
will-o"-the-wisp feeling." In response, the Disney
artists created exceptionally elaborate animation cels
to attain the fanciful feeling the master storyteller sought,
and this new sculpture perfectly captures that ethereal
spirit. Portraying the garden-fresh Summer Fairies,
who charmingly awaken to celebrate the full
flowering of Summer, this exquisitely
sculpted piece conveys all the
loveliness of nature and the
magic of these sweet sprites.
Plussed with three bronze
fairies, this enchanting
sculpture reflects the delicate
artistry of Walt Disneyï¿½`s animated
masterpiece. This latest Fantasia sculpture
is indeed something beautiful, something
fantastic, and perfectly complements the Walt
Disney Classics Collectionï¿½`s other entrancing
Fantasia Fairy sculptures..

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.
