(Walt Disney Studios, 1963) Highly displayable original production key master background setup featuring Merlin and Arthur from The Sword in the Stone, showing the young squire known as 'Wart' as he jogs over to his tutor, the brilliant wizard Merlin. The cels have been trimmed and applied by the studio to their gorgeously rendered hand-painted key matching production background of a thatch-roof cottage with lush plants and forest. Images measure 3 x 3.75 (Arthur) and 2.75 x 6.25 (Merlin), on a 20.75 x 14.75 key master background, with a painted area of 20 x 14. Displayed within a 21 x 16 mat, which crops the image to 14.75 x 9. Reverse of mat bears a Walt Disney Productions label affirming that "This is an original painting on celluloid, actually used in the Walt Disney production of 'Sword in the Stone.' It is one of a select few that have been released." In fine condition.
