    Walter Lantz Studio Staff Hand-Drawn Oversized Christmas Card (Walter Lantz, 1953). Here is a great piece of Lantz studio history. This is a massive handmade Christmas Card, prepared by the staff of Walter Lantz studios and given to Mr. Lantz in 1953. The top board is painted, "Holiday Greetings to Walter Lantz from his Staff 1953." On the inside of the large card is a great piece of original artwork, with caricatures of the staff. The art is hand-painted on 20" x 15" light board. A piece of velum paper lays over the artwork, and each staff member has strategically signed the velum over their own images. There are 30 signatures, including such animation legends as Don Patterson, Art Lundy, Ray Abrahams, Lowell Elliot, Paul Smith, and Gil Turner, to name a few. What a document of the Lantz Studios from 1953! Minor handling wear, slight cover stains, and edge wear. Very Good condition.
