Mickey Mouse Chocolate Bar Box Pkg Wm Paterson Ltd. Canada Vintage Ca. 1933 For Sale
Mickey Mouse Chocolate Bar Box Pkg Wm Paterson
Ltd. Canada Vintage Ca. 1933
3 3/4” x 1 1/2” x 1 1/4”
This light cardboard package once held a Caramel
Nougat Chocolate Bar made by William Paterson Ltd. in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. From Google, I learned this company was
purchased by George Weston Ltd. in 1928 and that Walt Disney Enterprises formed
in 1929. From these details, I estimate
this box likely dates to the early 1930’s (email a correction, if necessary).
The box shows a copyright symbol, “Walt
Disney Enterprises”, and the names, “Horace Horsecollar, Minnie Mouse, Pluto,
Mickey Mouse and Clarabelle Cow”.
Overall condition is very, very good. The glue on the side flap has let loose –
needs some fresh glue to tighten it up, but I have left it ‘as found’. It opens from the ends – all flaps present
and attached. There is a factory-made
waxy coating on the outside of this package which has picked up a little very
light ‘grime’ over the years – haven’t tried to clean it. No tears, scratches, writing, or major
issues. The second pic shows the box right-side-up.
It’s a rare and unusual Mickey Mouse collectible
that a collector will enjoy owning!
Will ship worldwide. Item is located in Canada.
