May 4th, 2019 10:00 a.m. PT – 700 Items to Auction in One Day
Van Eaton Galleries has announced The Art of Entertainment, a pop culture & Disneyland auction taking place May 4, 2019 beginning at 10:00 a.m. PT at Van Eaton Galleries in Sherman Oaks, California. A striking item included in the collection is a very rare, one-of-a-kind original presentation Nautilus used by Walt Disney in 1954 to promote the feature film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". The model can be seen with Walt Disney in television programs and promotional imagery from the 1950s. Constructed by hand from wood, this large Nautilus model was chosen by Walt Disney to introduce general audiences to his historic Nautilus prior to the release of the film.
The iconic imagery of the Nautilus influenced the Disney theme parks, with the fleet from Walt Disney World's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage" attraction modeled after the Nautilus from the original film. This Nautilus model is an incredible part of the creation and history of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and holds the distinction of being personally handled by Walt Disney. (Estimate: $20,000-$30,000).
The Art of Entertainment auction also offers hundreds of rare and historic Disneyland artifacts including original art, props, posters, models, theme park booklets, employee handbooks, souvenirs, signs, attraction models, maps, and more.
