    Lady and the Tramp "Beautiful Night" Limited Edition 1 of 1 Cel (Walt Disney, 1997). "So this is the night, and the heavens are right, on this lovely Bella Notte!" Bella Notte is Italian for "Beautiful Night." The "Bella Notte" scene in Lady and the Tramp is considered one of cinema's most romantic moments, not only in animation, but in all of film. This a rare one-of-one hand-inked, hand-painted cel of Tramp pushing his meatball over to his date of that evening, Lady. In 1997, Walt Disney Art Classics took original 1955 studio archived animation drawings, and inked and painted individual cels from these drawings. No two were the same. This one-of-one cel was from Sequence 7/Scene76. It was created from vintage studio archived drawings 158 and 141. The cel was hand-painted at the Disney Ink and Paint Department, located on the studio lot. These are great images of both Lady and Tramp, with sizes of 5" and 7". This rare set of one-of-one cels of this scene were instant sell-outs and rarely come to market. The "Bella Notte" cels are on a print background for presentation purposes. This amazing image is matted with an opening of 15" x 11", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 25" x 20". A Disney seal is on the cel and a Disney COA is on back of the frame. This image has to make you hungry! Extremely hard to find any "Bella Notte" one-of-one cels today. Frame is sold as-is, cel condition is Very Good.
