round the turn of the millenium Walt Disney created a serie of garden statues. All these statues where so called big figurines. Every statue was made of high quality Polyresin and handpainted. Their weights vary from a few kilogram to over 10 kilogram. The biggest statue consist out of two parts and measures an incredible lenght of over 1 meter in total.
Most of these statues are highly coveted by collectors and extremely rare. When you look at the statues you understand why. From the lazy Donald Duck to the hard working Mickey Mouse, every statue has its own charm.
This serie of statues has been produced two times. One time was a open production. This means that nobody knows how many there where produced. And one time was a numbered limited edition production. This edition was without a total number of produced items.
One of these times was for Heissner. Heissner is a company that has been founded in 1872. This company had their focus on producing garden products for humans. They produced the statues in a numbered limited edition. One statue was created exclusively for collectors. This statue was Scrooge McDuck standing on a treasure chest with a shovel in his hands.
