Disney Vintage on tour: Mailbox, Birmingham

Our Disney Vintage tour kicked off in 2020 at our Mailbox gallery in Birmingham. Over the next year, we'll be bringing our collectors an extremely special glimpse into the inner workings of Walt Disney's animation team with this rare background artist's desk. 

Created between 1939 and 1940, this original Walt Disney Studios desk was designed by the famed architect Kem Weber. Capturing the Golden Age of Disney, it features seldom-seen details including a drawer containing an original ceramic paintbrush holder and art supplies such as crayons, pastels and metal clips. If you look closely, you can even see the paint splatters!

Adding a touch of Disney magic to our state-of-the-art space, the desk complements our available collection of original animation art. We'll be revealing the next location on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram soon, so make sure you're following us to hear more.
