    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Bashful Maquette-Style Figure (Walt Disney, c. 1940s-50s). Fascinating one-of-a-kind handmade Maquette-type statue of the face of Bashful. Not a great deal is known about this piece, but it was possibly made by Martha Anderson Hand, the wife of Disney animator and director David Hand. She made 56 Bambi figures for a View Master series by Sawyers. She also was a leading sculptor in the 1950s for Hagen-Rennarker ceramics. This was the California pottery company that made Disney ceramic figurines. She would go on to become a premier doll maker. We can only speculate on this coming from her hand or not, but either way this is a highly polished maquette-type handmade head figure that is hand-painted and made with molded hard rubber and cloth material. It stands 12" and is on a wood base and stand. It is old, and is done for some type of merchandise project for the Walt Disney Company. Minor handling wear. Fine condition.
