    Description

    Golden Eggs Egg Basket Painted Production Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "I'm rich!" says Donald Duck after reading the news per headline that says "Eggs Zoom! Price Skyrockets! 85 cents a dozen... Liquid Gold!" This is an original 12 field production background of the large basket he gets to take the eggs to market and cash in. It can be seen at around the 1:18 mark. Donald does battle with a rooster for the eggs in this Wilfred Jackson-directed short. He places a "Hot Stuff" fast-paced jazz record on to increase the chicken's egg output. This short was released on 3/7/41. Painting is in gouache on 12 field 5-peghole background board; a Studio stamp is on reverse with notes "Donald Duck action cel." Several initial marks in OK box on back as well. Beautiful painting. Fine condition.
