    Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket Production Cel and Painted Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). A magnificent image of the puppet Pinocchio and the insect who would become his conscience, Jiminy Cricket! As the hand-inked, hand-painted cel has been trimmed to the edges, it is hard to determine if it is an actual production cel or a Color Model cel. Super Cels sold this as a production cel on a production background in the 1990s. The hand-painted background has been trimmed some as well. It measures 12.25" x 11.5". The bottom right corner margin reads "Seq.", so this may well have been a production background. However it could be from a cut scene or not have been used at all. Either way, this in one impressive setup from Walt Disney Studios from the 1940s. Pinocchio is an stunning 9.75" x 7.5", while Jiminy is 2.5" x 1.5". The cel has come un-stuck from the hand-painted background and is loose. Otherwise this is a very "Wow!" piece and should gather quite a bit of attention. Other than being un-stuck, it is in 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.
