Easter Eggs Masquerade as Cartoon Characters (May, 1938)

Easter Eggs Masquerade as Cartoon Characters

Easter eggs may be transformed into likenesses of cartoon and nursery-tale characters, with attractively colored cut-outs now available in book form. Each design provides both a base and a headpiece for a tinted egg, as shown, and the book contains materials for dressing up twenty eggs in different guises.

    I guess copyright laws weren’t as stringently enforced in the 30′s.

    No I don’t think they were. Seems I remember some story about Disney and copyrights. He realized their was money to be made in licensing his product.

    This is how they decorate eggs now.

    I don’t think you could stop private individuals painting eggs to look like Mickey Mouse anyway.

    No, you couldn’t stop them from painting eggs but you could stop them from selling those eggs once they were painted.

    You could certainly stop them from copying drawings, transferring them to cardboard, and selling them for profit.
