Vintage Disney Storage Finds #9

Vintage Disney Thrift Store Find!
Friday is Tie Day Today!
2 Mickey Mouse Ties by Cervantes – Made in USA!
Walt Disney Productions – 100% Qiana Nylon
(vintage neckwear 1960s – 1970s)
Scored these two “near mint” vintage Mickey Mouse (basketball) Ties by Cervantes this week at a local thrift store. Did a little research, and very happy with our finds!
Qiana: a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by Stanley Brooke Speck and introduced to the public by Dupont in 1968.
Qiana is described in US patent 3249591 as a polyamide fabric having improved resilience and silk-like hand, combined with superior wash-wear performance.
Walt Disney incorporated as Walt Disney Productions on December 16, 1929. Four companies were brought under the corporate name replacing Walt and Roy Disney’s partnership: Walt Disney Productions, Ltd.; Walt Disney Enterprises; Liled Realty & Investment Company, Ltd.; and Disney Film Recording Company, Ltd. The company retained the name for more than 50 years until it was renamed The Walt Disney Company in February, 1986.
NOTE: Items marked Walt Disney Productions (WDP) are vintage and made before 1986. It’s a great way to date Disney souvenirs.
