    Walt Disney Studios -- "Pinocchio" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Courvoisier Background.(1940). What a wonderful moment from Disney's masterpiece film! Pinocchio has accidentally lit his finger on fire and Geppetto attempts to extinguish it by blowing it out. Amazingly good condition. The gray pompon of Geppetto's nightcap has some tiny paint cracks and there is a tiny paint crack on Pinocchio's cheek, but the rest is excellent. This cel has it all. It showcases fine inking, painting, great composition, a wonderful moment from the film and exquisite air brushing. Pinocchio alone has 17 colors and this fine cel shows it all. The cel is trimmed and mounted to a hand painted and airbrushed Courvoisier background showing the character's shadow. Exceptional! Character image is 6.25" x 5.0" and the background area measures 9.5" x 7.25."

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
