    Dumbo Title Cel Signed by Maurice Noble and Key Master Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1941). Maurice Noble was one of the character designers on this film. This is the original title cel on its Key Master hand-painted production background. It was the eighth title cel from the opening of the film with the first one being RKO Pictures. It can be seen around the :41 second mark into the film. This great title cel showcases the film's Story Development Team as well as the film's Character Designers. What an array of talent! The title cel has been hand-signed by Maurice Noble (1911-2001) on the bottom border. This is a two-cel setup over the Key Master background. A studio 8" x 10" Press Photo of this exact title cel is included in the lot. It would have been used in press release kits. Rare! Fine condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.
