practically perfect lot 864
Idolatry would be apt to all things Mary Poppins.
I mean look at her.
864. Screen-used Julie Andrews “Mary Poppins” signature “bottomless carpetbag” from Mary Poppins. (Walt Disney, 1964) This large floral motif carpetbag is carried throughout the film by Julie Andrews as “Mary Poppins” in the classic Disney musical. Mary dazzles the children with the magic bag that can store any number of items, regardless of size or shape. Constructed of a dense woven carpet with a brown fabric interior, featuring brown leather handles and belt/buckle fasteners at top. The leather pieces exhibit some cracking; handles have detached (still present; can be easily repaired) and 3 ½ in. of belt strap is missing; overall, in fine condition. One of the most characteristic and iconic pieces of film history. $10,000 – $12,000
