    Description

    The China Plate Animation Background Drawing (Walt Disney, 1931). Rare original black and white production background from the Silly Symphony short directed by Wilfred Jackson. It was released on 5/25/31 and tells the story of the Willow Pattern China Plate legend. The short features a mean father and a fire breathing dragon getting in the way of two lovers. This background can be seen at the 50 second mark when the 3-piece Chinese band is playing. It's wild, with skeleton heads played like drums along the floor! Background is 11" x 9" on a 2-peghole background sheet. Bottom border is marked Scene #4 Jack Getting. Some glue from where a pasted-on drawing of a cymbal was on a stand. Very Good condition.
