Item/Description: Vintage ca 1950s-1970s Walt Disney’s “Donald Duck” rare handpainted frosted glass wall mirror artist-signed “H. Smith.”
This charming work of art mirror painting of THE ONE AND ONLY Donald Fauntleroy Duck can be hung and displayed exactly as it is, unframed, as wall art decor that also serves the dual function of being a mirror, or frame it and stand it on a shelf, table, countertop, vanity or dresser for decorative display purposes. It will need to have new, replacement “wall hangers” added to the back side in order to hang it as it currently is (currently it has velcro strips that are no longer “sticky”).
Perhaps Snow White’s wicked, evil queen stepmother might have been less persnickety if she’d had THIS “Mirror Mirror on the Wall” at her disposal! ;~)
