    Description

    Dumbo Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1941). "Rest your head close to my heart, never to part, baby of mine." This is an adorable Courvoisier production cel setup from one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Never before or since has a scene in an animated film touched so many hearts as the "Baby Mine" scene in Dumbo. The film takes place in a circus setting in Florida and starts with a formation of storks delivering newborn babies to various circus animals. Mrs. Jumbo's baby is delivered to her belatedly by an exhausted stork, the baby is well received by the others until the size of his ears are revealed after he sneezes. In this lot we have a superb production cel showing Dumbo as he is caressed by Mrs. Jumbo's trunk. This trimmed cel was hand-inked, hand-painted and placed on a Courvoisier background. WDP is stamped in the lower right corner. The cel is in a frame of 15" x 20.5" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 6" x 8.5". Frame sold as-is. Animation Art from the Courvoisier program is highly sought after by discerning collectors. Artwork condition is Very Good. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
