Inspiring Walt Disney: Cinderella’s Enchanted Carriage Mug from The Met Museum


Let teatime transport you. Our charming mug features Mary Blair’s (American, 1911-1978) dazzling concept art for Cinderella’s magical carriage, famously fashioned from a pumpkin by her trusty fairy godmother. Blair, who joined the Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1940, was an exceptional artist and animator whose whimsical designs realized many of Walt Disney’s visions in brilliant technicolor. This item was created in celebration of Inspiring Walt Disney: The Animation of French Decorative Arts. Presented alongside the 30th anniversary of the animated theatrical release of Beauty and the Beast (1991), the exhibition examines Walt Disney’s personal fascination with European decorative arts and design, and draws new parallels between Walt Disney Animation Studios’ enchanting creations and their artistic models, including Gothic Revival architecture, medieval design, and Rococo-inspired objects.
