Extremely rare bronze Donald Duck in-house Disney award statuette given only to a handful of recipients from 1952-59 (there have only been 8 winners). Only a couple have ever made their way to the marketplace. This particular Duckster is one of the earliest known, given to Max Westebbe in 1952. The cast bronze statue weighs about 2 pounds and stands 9" tall on a Bakelite base with a metal plaque engraved, "To Max Westebbe, best personal wishes, 1952, Walt Disney." Walt Disney personally presented the Ducksters to people who made significant contributions to the Walt Disney Studios--making the Ducksters significantly more rare than the Mousecars awards. Small crack on the base to the left of the plaque. Otherwise, the statue is in fine condition.
