    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "I noticed a light was out and I'm taking it to repair it," the Christmas tree-thieving Grinch tells Cindy Lou Who, as she asks, "Why Santa, why?" This is a hand-painted production cel from the beloved animated holiday TV special directed by Chuck Jones. The Grinch is a nice 7" image. The cel was boldly signed by Chuck Jones and has a seal of authenticity from Linda Jones and COA on back of the frame. The background is a print, placed for presentation purposes. Framed with glass and matted with an opening of 12" x 10". Fine condition.

    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.
