TURKISH PUZZLE WITH VINTAGE-LOOKING ILLUSTRATION
This Turkish puzzle itself is not vintage, dating from my childhood, that is the 1970s, but the illustration it features appears to date from the late 1930's, or at  least modeled from an illustration dating from that era, as the eyes of Mickey (and Minnie) do not have pupils.

An online image search revealed that the same illustration has also been used on a postal card printed in France. The Turkish puzzle manufacturer might have taken the illustration from that card.
