    Description

    Walt Disney Studios -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" Original Hand Painted Production Cel with Courvoisier Background. (1937). Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, Sneezy and Doc look up adoringly at Snow White. The cel is trimmed and applied to a mahogany wood grain veneer. This is an impressive multiple character pose that shows the character and joy of each of the dwarfs. It was originally sold through the Courvoisier Gallery of San Francisco in the 1930s. Since characters were usually painted on individual cels and overlaid to create the scene, this five-dwarf pose is exceptionally rare and fine. The detailed inking even shows stitch lines on the clothes. Note the rosy pink noses -- the talented ink and paint girls at the Disney studio actually used make-up to give the dwarfs their soft look. Superb condition and large. Dwarfs are 7.75" x 5.5" Cel size is 7.25" x 10.25." A real museum piece.
