    Bambi Production Cel Courvoisier Setup with Walt Disney Signature (Walt Disney, 1942). Thumper and his siblings show a young Bambi the ropes in this delightful Courvoisier setup with superb original hand-inked and hand-painted production cels from Disney's fifth animated feature film. Additionally, this joyful piece is matted, and the mat bears the signature of none other than Walt Disney himself! An unbelievably rare find, it also comes with an original WDP stamp. Bambi was released to theaters on 8/14/1942, and in 2008 the American Film Institute presented a list of the ten best films in each of ten classic American film genres. Not surprisingly, the classic masterpiece Bambi placed third in the animation category. Bambi, Thumper and his siblings are hand-trimmed to image and placed on an overlay cel. The mat window size is approximately 11" x 8" with an overall mat size of 15" x 12". The nitrate cel elements show some curling, and the original Courvoisier background has been replaced with a printed background for presentation purposes. Walt Disney-signed production art is extremely rare! The mat shows handling wear and paper toning due to age. The condition is Good.
