    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Color Model Cel (Walt Disney, 1937). The Seven Dwarfs in this film are Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, and Dopey. (Dopey would be the only one with blue eyes). They dwarfs went through major design changes from the beginning of the film's development to the finished product. This is an outstanding full nitrate color model cel of ALL SEVEN dwarfs. Their names are inked by their images. The cel is in a frame with an inked mat that reads "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs original sketches." This is a final design with the final color of each dwarf. This would have been done in the Ink and Paint Department and used for final ink and paint reference throughout the making of this film. This is one of the single most important cels of the dwarfs we have seen. This nitrate 12 field cel is in a frame measuring 17.5" x 15.5" with a mat opening of 11" x 9". Cel has slipped down in the frame. Paint missing from hats of Dopey, Sneezy and Happy. Minor restoration needed. Good condition.
