    Description

    Pinocchio Geppetto Studio Model Sheet (Walt Disney, 1940). This very early model sheet of Geppetto is labeled "temporary" indicating the final look for him had not yet been settled on. This 11" x 14" model printed on photographic paper features seven different images of Geppetto and one of Pinocchio for height comparison. A small "OK J.G." appears on the far right which suggest that it was approved by Disney character designer Joe Grant (1908 - 2005). Model sheets such as this were used as reference material and distributed amongst studio artists to insure character consistency. They are considered vintage Disney documents that were never meant to leave the studio and are therefore highly collectible today. Framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 11.5" x 14" in a 19.5" x 22" frame. It shows light handling and use; otherwise, condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
