DescriptionMary Poppins Pearly Band Production Cel with Master Background (Walt Disney, 1964). "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!" From the final note sung in the famous Mary Poppins musical number, here is a hand-painted original production cel featuring the Pearly Band, seen at the 59:11 mark of the film. It is presented on a stunning Master background rendered impressively in gouache to mimic the chalk pastel drawings of Bert, played by Dick Van Dyke. This beautiful background can be seen at the 56:35 mark of the film, in which Mary Poppins (portrayed by Julie Andrews) is awarded flowers for her victory in the horse race. The cel is trimmed to image by Disney's Art Props department, and this incredible piece was originally sold at the Disneyland Art Corner as evidenced by the official golden sticker on the back of the frame. A beautiful, large and iconic piece, it is framed under Plexiglas with a mat window size of 15.25" x 11.5" and an overall frame size of approximately 22" x 18". The piece overall is well preserved in the frame and shows minor handling wear. It is in Very Good condition, and the frame is sold as is.
