It's a hand-painted production cel of the Grinch over hand-painted presentation cels of Max, and the sled which were created to complete the scene and all are presented on a print background. The setup comes bearing a Linda Jones seal, Estate plate-printed Chuck Jones signature and a Linda Jones Letter of Authenticity. This oversized cel setup displays an image measuring an incredible 7" x 10.5" and showcases a Key Scene in a true holiday classic. 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.
