    Walt Disney Studios -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" Original Hand Painted Production Cel with Hand Painted Courvoisier Background. (1937). This is an unusually large portrait of Snow White from Disney's first animated feature film. Snow White trims the crust of the pie that she has made with the help of the little birds. Snow White is a huge 6 inches tall. The birds are trimmed and applied to the cel of Snow White. The complexity of this background and the sweet moment from the film makes this a particularly fine original cel. This cel was rescued from the Disney Archives,\s and the background was hand painted by Disney artists and was sold through the Courvoisier Gallery of San Francisco in the 1930s. Overall size is 7.25" x 7.25." A classic example of early Disney hand painted animation art.
