When Worlds Collide

A traditional piece of Mexican pottery from the 1930’s - 40’s, where Mickey Mouse crashed the party.
A 1930s boy’s Japanese Kimono with prints of Mickey Mouse.

THE INFLUENCE OF AMERICAN POPULAR CULTURE around the world has always been pervasive, but I was surprised to find this traditional 1930s boy’s Japanese Kimono decorated with prints of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse. This item is available at: Miyamoto Antiques in Sag Harbor NY. Phone: 631-725-1533—E-Mail:

Secondly, here is a Mexican plate, also from the 1930s-40s, decorated with… our little American friend. It is on the website of James Caswell: James Caswell Historia.
