    Description

    Lost and Foundling Sniffles and Hawk Production Cels on Master Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1944). Sniffles the mouse gives his adopted hawk a piggy-back ride at the 3:14 mark of this short directed by legendary Warner Brothers director, Chuck Jones. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Sniffles and his hawk who measure 6" x 6.5". The cel is over an original hand-painted Master background which appears at the 1:32 mark. The trimmed background is painted in gouache and features Sniffles' bed and a portrait hung in a locket. This rare one-of-a-kind Master setup dates to the fabled days of Termite Terrace and little original studio artwork from that era exists today. It is framed with a mat opening of 11" x 7.5" in a 15" x 12" frame. The 75-year-old cels show minor paint cracks in one of Sniffle's shoes and condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is. This lot will have to ship from Dallas to the winning bidder. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
