    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."
