    Description

    Pinocchio Geppetto Maquette (Walt Disney, 1940). Rare original animator's maquette of Geppetto in his woodcarver's apron with his chisel hammer on his belt. This is a great piece, almost 9" tall, with a beautifully sculpted image of him offering advice to Pinocchio! The bottom of the maquette reads "Return to Character Model Department" while the original #12 is on base as is another number 86. This is from Joe Grant's Character Model Department. These pieces were important tools for the entire animation process, offering 3D reference for all artists working with this character; it's a beautiful piece of Disney history as well! Original paint with some paint loss throughout. Good condition.
