The pin is modeled after a famous Norman Rockwell painting entitled "Triple Self-portrait." The pin shows Mickey looking into a mirror and supposedly painting a picture of himself. Instead the painting is a picture of Walt Disney on an easel. Mickey is sitting on a wooden bar-type stool and has his foot on a wooden crate that has the end painted green. There is a mustard yellow waste can (garbage can, or trash can). The mirror that Mickey is looking into is set on a stack of cases (maybe artist cases). One case is green in color, and the other one is blue. On the artist easel is the large sketch of Walt, signed by Mickey Mouse. There are also three small sketches that are tacked to the edge of the sketch of Walt. They appear to be a Mickey Icon, a Christmas-type tree, and a third sketch that is unrecognizable. On the top of the post of the easel is a black Mickey Mouse ear hat. Please note: Mickey's eyes in the mirror are actually gold, not black. The title of the Norman Rockwell painting this pin is based on is actually 'Triple Self-Portrait'. This pin should also be cross-referenced as "Saturday Evening Post" as Rockwell's original painting was SEP cover art, and a similar later Disney pin shows up when using that as the search critiria. The pin measures 1 3/8" (35 mm) wide by 1 3/4" (45 mm) tall. The back used was of the tie tack variety, which Disney experimented with over a very short time. The backstamp is "© Disney, MADE IN CHINA."
