Pin, Zuni-toons Inlay, Vintage, Mickey Mouse, 200
We love us some Zuni-toons and what could be more fun than the world’s most lovable mouse? Crafted in mother of pearl, jet, turquoise, and coral, Mickey Mouse can be worn as a pendant or pin.
Bit of history on Zuni-toons: The Zuni people are known for their amazing lapidary skills and only they could pull of the intricate stonework required to reproduce Disney’s beloved characters. History has it that Disney Corp sued and issued a “cease and desist” to protect their creative rights, however, Walt’s wife had spent some of her childhood on a reservation and convinced Disney to offer the Zuni’s permission to replicate the characters for a total of $2. Good story.
