Three wooden splinters, the largest of which measures 1” long, originating from Walt Disney's first Hollywood studio. Encapsulated by CAG, in a holder measuring 2.25” 3.25.” In 1923, Walt Disney arrived in Hollywood and roomed at his Uncle Robert's house located at 4406 Kingswell Avenue. Inside his Uncle's garage, Disney built an animation stand and worked on an animated reel of cartoon jokes which he tried to sell to the Pantages Theater Company.

The garage-turned-studio was sold in 1982 and moved to the Garden Grove Historical Society just a few miles from Disneyland, and has been on permanent display there for the past 30+ years. Leading the 1982 team that purchased and moved the garage was Disney employee and fan Arthur Adler. When the garage was moved, Adler saved the small pieces of wood that splintered off the garage during dismantling. Provenance: 1. Arthur Adler 2. Phil Sears, noted Disney expert.
