Disney Goebel DIS 042 A & B - Bambi Bud Vase Set

Ok, so I get that Bambi was popular with the Goebel company, but seriously, two matching bud vases that are mirror images of each other?

Disney Goebel DIS 033 - Flower Salt Shaker

Same figure as DIS 025 but as a shaker. There is only one set of Flower figures as shakers, so these came as a matched set.

Disney Goebel DIS 032 - Thumper Salt Shaker

Same figure as DIS 023, just as a shaker. These were typically sold in sets, and there are lots of Thumper sets, so you tend to find them mixed and matched.

Disney Goebel DIS 029 - Friend Owl Wall Ornament

This is apparently just some sort of decoration that you'd screw into the wall, sort of a miniature ceramic trophy, but with out the taxidermy.

Disney Goebel DIS 024 - Thumper

Get comfortable, we've got a lot of Thumpers coming...and some in two colors!

Disney Goebel DIS 021 - Bambi

By far, the most common of all the Goebels.

In 1957 Goebel re-modeled this figure, and re-issued all the variations of it.
