    Description

    Doctor Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Color Model Cel (MGM, 1966). This lot is a very rare early hand-painted Ink and Paint Department Color Model cel of the Grinch in his Santa suit. It is the early version of a slightly heavier Grinch. The red eyes in this cel are quite menacing! The image is an amazing 11" tall! This is one of the largest pure Grinch cels we have seen. Matted with an opening of 8" x 12". The mat is signed by animation legend, Mr. Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001). Framed with glass for an overall size of 17" x 21". Extremely rare -- and cool! Fine condition.
