Kwakiult mouse mask for Disney

aaaMystrySolvd-1051aQ:  I also have a mask that an Indian tribe in Canada gave Walt Disney. It is really big and there is an engraved plaque stating that it was a gift to Walt.  It is mounted on wood.  Anne, 1051

A:  This could have a lot going for it. Well made NWC native American masks are a favorite of collectors. Ones depicting mice are rare. This particular one was presented to the creator of Mickey Mouse as a gift from the tribe. It could be worth a lot if the quality is good. I wish we had some better photos. Fortunately, you can read the label that was stuck to the back.  AaaaMystrySolvd-1051b
