Flea Market Find: Vintage Disney Christmas Stocking

By Nick

We bought this vintage Disney Christmas stocking at our local flea market, Columbus, for $7.

It measures about 9 1/2 x 15 inches and is in really great shape considering it is likely from the 1960s.

I'm pretty confident saying it's from the mid 60's based on the fact that one side features Merlin from The Sword in the Stone, which was released on Christmas day in 1963. The next animated feature wasn't released until The Jungle Book in 1967!

There is a lot happening on this stocking! In fact, there is something I didn't notice until taking photos. Is this Peter Pan below? It's pretty vague.

Donald is painting candy canes.

I'm not exactly sure what Dwarf this is, but I'm thinking Happy as he has a big smile on his face as he paints a train.

Clearly this is Dopey, though I am not sure of who put him in charge of the lights.

Is this Huey, Dewey, or Louie? On Duck Tales, Dewey wears blue, so we'll go with that.

This is Thumper?

This is certainly Bambi being decorated by Mickey and Alice.

They look like they are all well on their way to finishing decorating for Christmas. How about you?
