    Mickey Mouse Fantasia "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1940). Mickey gestures magically in this original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel from Fantasia's "Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment. It's a 12 field nitrate cel; it was not part of the Courvoisier program. Nice full-figure 4" image of Mickey wearing the Sorcerer's hat, marked #43 in the lower right corner. The cel is stapled to 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper, marked with a Disney copyright notice. The cel was given to the late Louise Bauer for reference; she created a line of Disney pottery and ceramic pieces, basing her designs on vintage cel images like this. Slight paint separation on one foot, and a tiny speck of paint loss in the hat, with some rippling of the cel. Very Good condition.
