    Description

    Donald Duck Color Model Cel with Presentation Background (Walt Disney, c. 1930s). An outstanding mid-1930s hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed production/color model cel of a great full-figure Donald Duck. This is his second 1930s design, and he still has the white hat with blue stripe. It's possibly from the 1936 short Orphan's Picnic. Donald was on his way to eclipsing Mickey Mouse and becoming the reigning Disney Star in the 1940s. He was voiced by the late Clarence Nash. Nice full-figure image size of 3.5". This beautiful image is on a hand-painted presentation background. The setup is matted with an opening of 5" x 6", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 15" x 16.5". This is one of the best pure Donald Duck cels from this era we have come across to date! Frame is sold as-is. Cel condition is Fine.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
