    Pinocchio Little Dutch Girl Marionettes with Pinocchio Production Cel Courvoisier Set-Up (Walt Disney, 1940). Pinocchio frolics with two Dutch Girls in this scene from Stromboli's puppet show. This is one of the most elaborate Courvoisier production cel set-ups we've ever seen; each figure has been meticulously trimmed and attached to a custom Courvoisier airbrushed background. The girls have delicately trimmed "strings," which are cleverly incorporated into Pinocchio's song, "I Got No Strings." There is curling on all three figures, but no paint loss; the girls (minus their strings) are almost 5" while Pinocchio, including his airborne cap, is 5.5". The hat was trimmed and placed separately on the background; it has a slight paint separation near the top of the feather. Considering this elaborate set-up is already over 70 years old, it's in Fine condition. The original cream-colored mat with "From Pinocchio" hand-lettered in the lower left corner. A second mat is included; framed with glass to an overall 19.5" x 17". The Courvoisier label is included on the back.
