    Ferdinand the Bull Mother Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). Here is a beautiful full-body production cel of Ferdinand the Bull's loving mother from the 1937 Oscar nominated short directed by Dick Rickard. It's an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel and is still in the Courvoisier setup from when it was first sold. The 4.5" x 5" image has been painstakingly trimmed from its nitrate cel and applied to a custom hand-painted airbrush background. It's an incredible image of Ferdinand's mom looking directly at the audience as she is announced by the narrator around the 1:12 mark. The art is matted and framed under glass with a mat opening of 8" x 10" in a 12" x 14" frame. Missing paint, small paint cracks, and the image has separated slightly from the background in spots, otherwise, condition is Very Good for an animation cel of this age. Frame is sold as-is.
