    Donald Duck Duckster Award (Walt Disney, 1952). Presented as an in-house award to the prestigious people of the Disney company for notable acts of service to the company and community, the "Duckster" award is a highly coveted accolade. These awards are treasured family heirlooms that rarely come to market. This particular award is on a bakelite base, making it a rare gem from the first generation of these awards. It was presented to Ruth Lowenthal, an RKO executive based in New York. RKO Pictures was one of the Big Five studios of Hollywood's Golden Age, and the company distributed Disney films from 1937 to 1956, beginning with the theatrical short Hawaiian Holiday and ending with the short Hooked Bear. The overall award measures 9.5" tall with Donald Duck measuring approximately 6.5". There are some small patches throughout where the bronze finish has rubbed off, but otherwise, this rare piece is in Very Good condition.
