It is hard to tell the entire story. But the short version. These 40% Scale items were petitioned to be made for Walt Disney Productions. The contacted and hired Bob Baker Marionettes to construct these pieces. They were sent to Israel as a 8-window prop to advertise this popular move “Bedknob and Broomsticks. There are documented letters received back in response to the inquiries about the authentication of the pieces. (Included in this sale) Quantity of (2) When they were sent back to the estates, Disney had not filed the proper paperwork and these went to a local sale and eventually ended up in the hands of my friend whom I am selling these for. Also included are original sketches of Windows 1, 2, 3 and 8. These are hand done sketches on velum paper. They are 14” x 17” and have notes showing what the scene is to look like and how it operates. Then we have photos sent by Disney that show the scenes of all of the 8 windows as they were in Israel. So much documentation. And then to have the animated scale models as well is just outstanding. A detailed inventory of the sale listing is below. Not all of the props used in the window displays shown in the photos are in the sale. What is shown and listed below is what you will be getting in this sale.

This really is outstanding. The detail is really indescribable. Definitely Bob Baker’s best work for sure. The finite detail carries down to the exact replication of the outfits the characters wore on the show. The condition of the models does have some wear and tear. The pieces are quite old and have some areas where the skin has shrunk perhaps and has tears, namely around the knees of the crouching pieces, around the hands and at the neck area of the standing boy, they all have some damage and I have shown some examples in the photos. This all could be repaired I am sure, but also is not identifiable when displayed unless you are carefully looking at the piece.
This collection is offered at sale with a . Shipping will be managed and worked out with the successful buyer with either a local pick up or arranged shipping to be paid by the buyer once the agreement has been reached.
These pieces were animated, some of the motors that operated these in the windows are part of the package but simply put these display nicely and I suppose could be restored to working as they might have in the windows.
