The setup is framed to 21" x 18.5" with a matboard aperture of 11.5" x 9". Frame sold as-is. The cel is hand-signed by the legendary animator and director Chuck Jones. A Linda Jones seal is on the piece and a Linda Jones COA comes with the lot. Condition is Very Good with the cel lifting away from the background.
