    Pinocchio Original Studio Maquette (Walt Disney, 1940). An extremely rare animator's maquette of Pinocchio, from Joe Grant's Character Development department. Maquettes gave everyone working on a film proper 3-D reference. This is an original Pinocchio maquette with all original paint, marked on bottom with the number 9 and "Return to Character Model Department." It features an adorable pose, measuring 7" tall. Campbell Grant (1909 - 1992) worked for Disney for 12 years and was a character designer on Pinocchio; this maquette came from his personal collection. This is without a doubt an important piece of Disney history. There is moderate paint wear and chipping over much of the piece. Specific areas of chipping include on the brim of Pinocchio's hat, on the lower tip of the left side of his bow tie, on his right shoe, the back of his right leg, and the back of his neck, all of which can be seen in our online images. Overall Very Good condition.
