    Bedknobs and Broomsticks King Leonidas Color Model Cels Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1971). Soccer-loving monarch of Naboombu Island, King Leonidas stars in this set of three original hand-painted color model cels. The first is a full-figure cel of the King with his royal robe; figure size is 7.5". The cel is matted with an opening of 7.5" x 9.5", and an overall mat size of 11" x 14". There are cracks and slight separation in the paint on the King's shorts, and there is a small bit of missing paint in his tail. The second piece is a close-up that highlights the King's magical Star of Astaroth; figure size is 9". Matted with an opening of 14.5" x 9.5", overall mat size 20" x 16". There is some paint separation in the arms, and two tiny areas of missing paint under one arm and one point of his crown. The Star of Astaroth is seen to even better advantage in the third cel, a tight close-up of the medallion; it's matted with an opening of 13.5" x 10.5" and overall mat size of 20" x 16". As a bonus, there is a fourth piece; it's a photo print of David Tomlinson as Professor Browne on the soccer field, holding the ball. The background has been trimmed away from the print, which is mounted on a 16 field cel. Good to Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
