    Mickey Mouse Crib Toy Preliminary Art (Walt Disney/JayMar/Kay Kamen, c. 1940s). In 1932 Merchandising Executive Kay Kamen (1892 - 1949) made an agreement with Walt and Roy Disney to handle the rights for all Disney Licensing. He held this position for 20 years. By 1948, revenue of Disney Licensed product was at $100 million. This is a rare original artwork for a Disney Licensed Crib Toy that was submitted to Kay Kamen Limited. It is from Jay Mar Specialty company, a toy manufacturer in Brooklyn NY who specialized in cartoon and radio character toys. This amazing look into the licensed product world of Kay Kamen and Walt Disney is in graphite and Conte crayon on onionskin paper measuring 23" x 9". The Crib toy shows Mickey Mouse with the trademark arms used by many JayMar Toys. Mickey is a nice 6" pose. Head shot art is also included of Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey and Louie. Artwork is stapled to a backing board and stamped "ROUGH NOT TO BE USED PROPERTY OF KAY KAMEN LTD" twice. Also, a job number is written on artwork. Extremely rare. Minor handling and edge wear a few border tears near staples. Very Good condition.
