DescriptionOut of the Inkwell Betty Boop and Koko Limited Edition Cel #97/125 Signed by Shamus Culhane (King Features Syndicate/Fleischer Studios, 1990). One of the earliest of the Betty Boop limited edition Fine Art cels, Out of the Inkwell was an instant hit with collectors. The small edition of only 125 hand-inked hand-painted cels sold out immediately and inspired a line of ltd. Edition cels, serigraphs and prints created to sate the demand of Boop and early Fleischer Studios enthusiasts. This image featuring Betty and Koko the Clown is presented over a photographic print background, bears a studio seal in the lower left corner and is hand-numbered 9/125 on a Certificate of Authenticity mounted to the back of the frame. The cel has been signed by legendary Betty Boop animator Shamus Culhane (1908 - 1996) just below Betty and the signature is faded. The piece is framed under Plexiglas with mat opening of 13" x 10" in a 21" x 18" frame. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is
