    Donald Duck on Trapeze Toy with Box (Geo. Borgfeldt Corp., 1930s). The desirability and collectibility of early Disney character toys is legendary. Many a friendship has been strained or lost in the pursuit of certain rare Disney toys. A toy such as this... Donald Duck on Trapeze. The early 1930s Borgfeldt celluloid toy offered in the Larry Jacobs Collection is perhaps the finest to be offered in years. The delicate toy is in remarkable condition; metal portions of the trapeze show virtually no wear and the celluloid long-billed Donald is completely intact and reflects only a few minute scuffs. The box is outstanding. Nice sharp colors with no fading. There are no corner/edge separations. Corners and edges show some minor nicking; couple of box top creases, one which extends along one side of bottom flap. Overall Very Fine condition. A truly classic toy for the those looking for the very best. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
