    Description

    Pinocchio Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket Book Illustration Cel (Walt Disney, 1940). An extremely rare hand-inked and hand-painted production cel of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket, painted by the Disney Ink and Paint Department, for the DC Heath Pinocchio Storybook. DC Heath was based in Boston, and did a series of Disney children's books, each one "Illustrated by the Walt Disney Studio." The vibrant colors come from the fact that actual nitrate cels were painted for the book's illustrations. A top cel was inked in black and a second cel had the hand-painted color. This is the exact cel used for the image on the "Table of Contents" page. Nice images up to 2" tall. Framed to an overall size of 15" x 11", with a mat opening of 7" x 3.5". In Fine condition.
