    Pinocchio Production Cel and Background Painting Group (Walt Disney, 1940-59). A group of five items from the Disney Art Props and Ink and Paint Department, including two airbrushed paintings where Jiminy Cricket slides across the violin. One is a 12 field 5-peghole page marked #158 with detail of the strings and Jiminy's shadow, while the other is the violin peghead on a trimmed 12 field sheet marked 60-3 65-1. This second page has some light tape stains, and is Very Good. We believe these may have been used for Art Prop setups. The third piece in this lot is a beautiful hand-inked and painted candlestick on a cel trimmed to 8" x 11", with a 10" tall image. The fourth piece is a trimmed cel of a bucket, trimmed to the outline. It measures about 5" x 3" and is nicely detailed; slight paint chip on the top right side, otherwise Fine condition. The last item is a hand-written ledger sheet document dated May, 1959, listing colors needed for Pinocchio characters Gideon, H. J. Longfellow, and Coachman. Fine condition on all unless noted. An interesting look into the Ink and Paint Department at Walt Disney Studios!
