    Description

    Aladdin Jafar and Iago Presentation Cel and Master Background (Walt Disney, 1992). "To think we gotta keep kissing up to that chump, and his chump daughter, for the rest of our lives" says Iago to Jafar! On October 9, 1993, the Art of Aladdin Auction was held in New York City with only 255 lots offered. This is lot 134 from that auction, a magnificent hand-painted production background of the balcony of the Sultan's Castle. It's paired with an original one-of-a-kind hand-painted cel of Jafar with Iago. Original hand-painted production Master backgrounds were sold with one-of-one hand-painted presentation cels created from original animation drawings. The cels were placed on their corresponding Key Master hand-painted production backgrounds. These cels rarely come up for resale. There were no production cels used in this film, so these are the single rarest pieces of artwork from Aladdin offered directly from the Walt Disney Studios. A rare production cel overlay is on this setup. The cel has the Disney seal and includes the Auction COA on back of frame. Nice images of 5". The setup is framed with glass for an overall size of 23" x 18", matted with an opening of 16" x 12". Fine condition.
