“`Throughout the 1960s, Imagineer Rolly Crump brought to life Disney Theme Parks’s most iconic attractions and rides, including It’s a Small World, Enchanted Tiki Room, Adventureland Bazaar, and Haunted Mansion. Later this month, some of his original pieces goes on the block at Van Eaton Galleries in Sherman Oaks, California.

“`The most valuable of the 400-plus lots is Crump’s original model for a clock on It’s a Small World, which could sell for $80,000, according to the auction house. The design was mocked up from Disney artist Mary Blair’s original sketch, and the result is now a permanent fixture from the boat ride attraction.

“`Other items up for grabs are Polynesian-style shield Crump sculpted for the  Enchanted Tiki Room; an original devil mock-up from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride; and a Haunted Mansion poster. A ticket for the grand opening of Disneyland in 1955 is expected to sell for as much as $5000; unfortunately, this will not allow the purchaser entry to the park. In addition to pieces created for Disney, the collection also includes Crump’s original artwork.

“`The Life and Career of Disney Legend Rolly Crump auction is scheduled for April 28th, 2018.
