    Cinderella Production Cel/Color Model (Walt Disney, 1950). "This just arrived from the palace." Cinderella reveals the invitation to the royal ball to her wicked stepmother and stepsisters in this fantastic original hand-inked and hand-painted production cel and color model from Walt Disney's 1950 masterpiece Cinderella. This exact moment can be seen at the 28:44 mark of the film. Cinderella was released after a long period of time in which the Disney company lost connections to the European markets due to World War II. The studio was over $4 million in debt and on the verge of bankruptcy when Cinderella's explosive box office success single-handedly saved the company and brought about a new successful era in the canon of Disney animated feature films. This wonderful original production cel of the iconic Disney Princess is trimmed to image, mounted to a new cel and taped to a printed background for presentation purposes. This piece comes from the estate of Disney Legend Gunnar Mansson, the man responsible for establishing the image of Disney in the Nordic countries for more than 25 years until is retirement in 1989. Cinderella measures 7.25" tall on the 15" x 11" cel. The original cel shows minor handling and slight wrinkling, and the condition of the piece overall is Very Good.
