Description

    Pinocchio Undersea Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). "Father! Father!" As Pinocchio travels along the bottom of the sea with a rock tied to his newly grown tail, he encounters all kinds of sea life, while searching for Geppetto. This is an incredible Courvoisier hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup with 27 magnificently painted fish! Most are trimmed to the image edge and mounted to a beautifully detailed Courvoisier hand-painted background. There is also a hand-painted production water effect overlay of air bubbles. Some of the fish have slipped a bit, but all paint is intact. It is a huge setup in the original Courvoisier mat, with the original pencil "From Pinocchio" handwriting just under the image area and an opening of 16" x 10". The original Courvoisier sticker is on the back, although the paper is cracked with age. This originally sold at Arthur H. Harlow and Company-Etching-Engraving-Paintings, at 620 5th Ave, in New York. This image can be seen at about the 55:50 mark into the film before Monstro opens his eye. The colors on these fish are fantastic. There is some small glue spots where a few fish are loose; however, it is one of the most clever and creative Courvoisier setups we have ever seen. In Very Good condition.
