Minimum Bid: $500.00

(Walt Disney Studios, 1941) Original production cel featuring Minnie Mouse from the animated short film The Nifty Nineties, signed and inscribed on the mat in blue crayon, “To the 444th Bomber Squadron, from Walt Disney,” with the encircled Walt Disney Productions “WDP” stamped above. The cel, which depicts Minnie in late 19th century attire, has been trimmed and applied to an airbrushed background as prepared by Courvoisier Galleries for sale. Image measures 3.5 x 5.25, with a mat opening of 7.5 x 7. This piece is also framed to an overall size of 14 x 16 and has the original Disney Courvoisier Galleries label on the reverse, which reads, in part, "This is an original painting on celluloid, actually used in the Walt Disney Production of ‘Gay Nineties.’ It is one of a select few that have been released to art collectors. The remainder have been destroyed." In very good to fine condition, with a few instances of lifting to paint and specks of toning; the cel itself is beginning to raise from background; in spite of its flaws, this remains a highly attractive cel of Mickey's main squeeze, with Walt Disney's bold signature and patriotic inscription adding even greater significance to the overall piece. Provenance: Christie’s, April 1992.
