Hello! i got this as a gift for christmas this year and i can not for the life of me find information on it on the web. It came with a little tag from the antique story reading:
"Benay-pressed wool and figural hat.
One of the first designs for novelty hats sold at Disneyland.
Over the years Mickey has changes (this looks like steamboat willy)
The wool ears are gone- did not stand up after long use and the pressed face is no longer...Mickeys face has really changed
this hat is from the 1950's"
I couldnt find much and was wondering if anyone on here knew more about it ! please let me know!
thanks - Jenn
BTW- even thought this looks like a mask its shaped like a normal mickey mouse hat so if you were to wear it like a hat the mask part would go on top of your head
