    Description

    Pinocchio Ship's Balcony Painted Master Background (Walt Disney, 1940). As Monstro opens his great mouth, a massive school of tuna is brought into his body. Gepetto, with the help of Figaro, starts fishing them in, one at a time, until he rescues Pinocchio. This beautiful Master background is from this Sequence, showing the outer balcony from which Geppetto is fishing. The gouache on paper art measures approximately 17" x 9", and has a faded production stamp in the lower right corner. The back side has notes that read "BG OK 9-5-39; Overlay not on top pegs but is OK for camera; this BG. used by inkers 9-20." The production stamp is included. A clear cel covers the background. The light showing from the porthole window is amazing! The reverse has old glue stains, and a tear is present in the upper right corner; otherwise Fine condition.
