    Golden Eggs Painted Production Background with Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1941). Donald Duck reads that the price of eggs is skyrocketing so he decides to raid the hen house, stock up, and get rich. His only problem is the Rooster keeping guard! This is a great hand-painted production background of the shelf where Donald gets his disguises to dress up as a female chicken. You can see this background at about the 2:16 mark into the short. A cel of Donald's hand grabbing the disguise is over the background to create a fun Master setup. The number 10 is written in the bottom right of the cel of Donald's hand and arm This short was released on 3/7/41, during the early rationing days of World War II. Gouache on 12 field 5-peghole background board, with the back stamped "Property of Walt Disney Productions," with a "Production" stamp and "OK" stamp as well. Beautiful painting! Fine condition.
