    Beauty and the Beast Animation Drawings Set of 4 (Walt Disney, 1991). Here's a great sequence of animation roughs featuring Mrs. Potts from Disney's 1991 box-office-smash, Beauty and the Beast. Mrs. Potts was the head housekeeper of a spoiled prince's castle, and the mother of several children, the most notable being Chip, who is found by her side at almost every instant. When the prince encounters and insults a powerful enchantress, Mrs. Potts is transformed into a sentient object, a teapot, along with the rest of her colleagues, while the Prince is transformed into a monstrous beast. These awesome roughs were created using a Polychromos blue pencil on 16 field animation paper. Because Beauty and the Beast was nearly completely hand-drawn animation on paper that was then scanned, painted and composited via computer, there are no production cels, making these rare drawings even more valuable and highly prized by collectors in that they are some of the only tangible elements of original production artwork that one can actually hold in one's hands, frame and display. The artwork shows production handling and edge wear with superficial wrinkling and a mild stain in the top center. Timing sheet notes are written along the lower right of three pieces. Overall condition is Good.
