    The Thief and the Cobbler Pan Production Cel (Richard Williams, 1993). This beautifully animated film took over three decades to complete because of both its ambitiously complex animation and independent funding issues. It was directed and co-produced by British animator Richard Williams and went through several distribution companies who released it under different names and edited differently. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of the thief from the title. He measures 5" x 5.5" on a 12" x 24.75" pan cel. It's a fantastic full-figure image complete with the character's ever-present swarm of gnats by his head. The art is matted with an opening of 9" x 23.5".Condition is Fine.
