    Walt Disney Studios -- "Sleeping Beauty" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Print Background. (1959). This unusual set up of Prince Phillip and Princess Aurora was released through the Disneyland Art Corner Store in the 1960's. A Disney employee mixed and matched original cels from the late 1950s through the 1960's with print backgrounds that were provided to her from the animation studio. She used her own sense of style to match the cels with a complementary background. Here are Sleeping Beauty and her Prince as they dance away in the film's finale. The background is a print of Cruella DeVil's country house, "Hell Hall" from Disney's "101 Dalmatians." The cel alone is a classic and a joy to see. The characters dance away and get smaller and smaller in this sequence, so this large image is especially fine. The Princess and Prince are 5.5" x 6.75" and the background area measures 8.25" x 8.5." A lovely cel with an interesting history!
