Evan K. Shaw Catalog

I was lucky enough to stumble across this Evan K. Shaw catalog pretty early on in my collecting days, and it is this catalog that eventually led me to the teapots in yesterday's post. It has a great cover of Alice in front of what looks like a production background of the Tulgey Wood. The little blurb is kinda weird - since when are Disney figures 'native American art'? Did Metlox only employ American Indians?!

The cover is actually a wraparound cover, the back half featuring additional figures of the White Rabbit, the Tweedles and the Walrus.

The remaining 3 character figures (Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Dormouse) along with the teapots is pictured on the first page.


There is a cool interior page that shows all the fascinating displays you can create with these wonderful Disney figures in your very own home. I love the 1950s decor pictured here,

although I must say I don't think I'd ever create a center piece like the Alice one they pictured.

Inside back cover is the price list. I must admit I was a little surprised at how much these figures were, at least what the suggested retail prices were. Alice was $3.50, which works out to about $28.75 today according to the inflation calculator. What does a park figure go for these days?

I just stumbled across your blog and I am quite impressed with it. Both my wife and I are big Alice fans, and have enjoyed going through your past posts and seeing all of the collectibles and photos. We look forward to seeing what else you post in the future!

Hi Matt,

I just sent you an e-mail regarding Alice & Snow white figurines believed to be Shaw. Thank you in advance for any help.
