    Walt Disney Studios -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Courvoisier Background. (1937). The Wicked Witch begins her journey to find Snow White in this dramatic scene with a fine Courvoisier hand painted background. The Witch appears only at the end of the film, and original cels of this evil villainess are highly sought after. Sitting on the seat of the small boat is the famous basket with five green apples and one poisoned red one! This multiple level cel consists of the Witch and basket which are trimmed and mounted to a cel of the boat. There is an overlay painting of the swamp plants to the left and water effects to the right of the boat. The fine scene has amazing detail and composition. The boat has an area of paint missing from the bow and a few small paint separations on the side below the basket. The Witch has a chip of paint missing from her right hand. Very good condition overall and a fine rare set up. The Witch and boat measure 6.5" x 5.25" and the background is 10.5" x 7.25." .
