(Ross & Ross, 1930s) An extremely rare set of Three Little Pigs Dolls by Ross and Ross of Oakland, California. Each doll stands an impressive 18" tall and is made of a stitched fabric body. The Practical Pig has clothes made of a denim-type material while the others feature felt clothing. Each pig has beaded eyes and hand-painted facial features. Each features a stamp on the reverse reading "Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs mfd by Ross & Ross." The dolls show wear and fading and have small tears along some seams, but present in fine condition overall. We cannot find another example of these dolls and they may be prototypes presented to Disney for consideration of getting a license. Ross and Ross ceased manufacturing in the 1930s and these may have been some of the last dolls they made.
