Mickey Mouse's Spaceship Pencil Box (1935)


A fun piece of ephemera today, a Mickey Mouse Pencil box from 1935.  People forget about the craze for Mickey Mouse in the 1930s, but they also forget how the revolutionary idea of rockets taking people into space was also a current "fad". This captures in a whimsical way for children how people could travel into space.  There were a series of similar Dixon Mickey Mouse pencil boxes on different topics but this one particularly caught my eye (of course).

From the Weston's label inside they may have been a promotional/premium item with these crackers.
