It's the ultimate center piece of any animation art collection.Buyers are responsible for understanding that this is vintage animation artwork that has characteristics that are NOT NEW. This is an antique, that is in typical antique condition. You buy imperfect, used and have wear. This is a vintage original production cel. It is vintage, not new. It is considered to be an antique. If you are not an experiencedcollector of Art Corner cels then this is not recommended for you, the novice collector.There is no such thing as a 'mint' condition Art Corner cel Set-up. Inspect closely, might have areas of missing paint or cracking which is Normal wear for a 60 years old hand painted cel.Becauseit is vintage and NOT new, ispreciselywhy you want to collect and buy thesepieces. Unfortunately, rookie buyers have un-realisticexpectations of perfections.....for those of you who have that need for perfection, then you should buy a sericel. That's the perfect piece for you.
Personally, as animationart collector of over 40 years. I LOVE Art Corner cels. I love that they were original Sold at Disneyland in the 50s and 60s while Walt Disney was alive and running Disneyland. Their very existenceis becauseWalt himselfthought they were artwork and he made them availableto the masses. They are one of a kind. They appeared on-screen. Each was hand painted by Top Disney talent, the finest Disney artists at the studio. Not some guy in a theme park, in a dark corner of a shop, doing drawings for 5 bucks. Simply speaking they are the ultimateDisneyland collectible.The Art Corner Label on the back is the Official Disney Certificates of Authenticity.
