    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Publicity Cel and Background (Walt Disney, 1937). Doc, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, Grumpy, and blue-eyed Dopey -- they are all here! This is an amazing hand-inked, hand-painted nitrate cel of all Seven Dwarfs. This cel was created by the Walt Disney Studio for their new Courvoisier Animation Art Program that began initially as a method to promote the new animated feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. All seven dwarfs are trimmed to image and mounted on the airbrushed Courvoisier wood veneer background. The cel is in its original cream-colored mat with the script writing on bottom left corner that reads "The Seven Dwarfs" and in its original frame. An original small white Courvoisier label is on the reverse. Nice large images of 5" tall. Small paint separation and several small cracks in legs and hat areas. For this vintage and large size, and including all seven dwarfs, we consider the condition to be Very Good.
