    Description

    Alice Comedies Julius Model Sheet Original Art Signed by Virginia Davis (Walt Disney, c. 1920s). Animation history began when Walt Disney, along with Ub Iwerks, Hugh Harmon, Rudolph Ising, and several others, worked on Disney's Kansas City Laugh-O-Gram animated cartoon series. This is a rare animator's practice model sheet of one of Walt Disney's very first animated characters -- Julius the Cat. This character was seen in Walt's early series of live action/animated shorts based on Alice in Wonderland. The series first began in 1923, with six-year old actress Virginia Davis (1918 - 2009) playing Alice. Note: Virginia Davis has signed this rare piece of animation history in the bottom left corner. Art is in graphite on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper, with six great images of Julius, measuring 2" each. This was originally sold through the Les Clark estate sale in the early 1990s. Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
