    Wynken, Blynken and Nod Courvoisier Multiplane 3D Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). The multiplane camera revolutionized animation and Disney is credited with constructing the first practical one for use in the filming of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was first tested on a few shorts like this Silly Symphony and the Academy award-winning short The Old Mill. The process allowed for up to seven layers of animation at once. Images were painted in oil on glass and could be set at different depths create dimensional environments. This is a scene from around the 0:08 mark of Wynken, Blynken and Nod as the title characters sail through a starry dreamscape in a boat made from a wooden shoe.

The 7.75" x 8.25" frame has an opening that measures 5.5" x 6". Its shows minor and Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
