    Description

    Traffic Troubles Mickey Mouse Black and White Nitrate Production Cel with Presentation Background (Walt Disney, 1931). Taxi driver Mickey takes his cab out on a very dilapidated city street in this exceedingly rare hand-inked and hand-painted production cel from the early B&W Mickey short, Traffic Troubles. The cel has been trimmed to the line and remounted onto a recent hand-painted presentation background. Framed and matted to an image area of 12" x 9.5", the trimmed cel measures 5" x 3.25". As to be expected for a Nitrate item, there is cel discoloration, ink and paint loss, and slight buckling; otherwise the art is in Good condition and still presents well. As most animation collectors know, finding choice black and white Nitrates featuring Mickey Mouse is a difficult task, with only 50 currently known to exist; don't let this one zip by without bidding!
