Description

    Walt Disney Studios -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Courvoisier Background. (1937). Here's an amazing original cel of Dopey with multiple drumsticks from the "Silly Song" sequence. This terrific full figure pose captures the joy and energy of Dopey in a frozen moment of Disney history. The background is hand painted on a mahogany wood grain veneer. Disney employee Helen Nerbovig, along with Guthrie Courvoisier, created the program that enabled Disney enthusiasts to collect original cels from many early Disney films. This exceptional set up was put together for the Courvoisier Gallery Program in the late 1930s. There is a chip of paint missing from Dopey's sleeve and a few hairline paint separations on the arm with the drumsticks. Dopey is 4.5" x 4.5" and the background measures 7.75" x 7."
