Wooden Disney Mickey Mouse

This early wooden 3.5" Disney Mickey Mouse, probably distributed by the Borgfeldt company, was about to lose his arms. One hand was still with him, but not attached. His old papery ears were about to go. When he was new, he sported an oval gold paper label on his chest, which read, "Reg. U.S. Pat Mickey Mouse, Copr. Walt Disney."

This is the same little guy after his makeover. The arms were replaced, his original hand re-attached, and a second hand, made of old wooden beads, was attached to the other arm. His original ears were salvaged, reinforced, and are still visible from the front.
