    Fantasia "Dance of the Hours" Madam Upanova Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). Original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Madam Upanova. This is a great Courvoisier cel setup in its original oval cut mat and frame. The cel is trimmed to image and placed on an airbrushed background. The WDP stamp is on the mat. The original Courvoisier certificate is on the back of the frame. This is the first character we see in the "Dance of the Hours" Segment, sleeping at the top of the stairs in the morning. It is said all of the Ostrich ballet dancers were modeled after Irina Baranova from the Ballet Russe. The circular cut mat has an approximate opening size of 5.25". The glass-front frame is 10.5" x 11.75". Madam Upanova's eyelashes in this cel are amazing. There's a slight curl on her white feathers, otherwise Fine condition. Very hard-to-find character!
