1944 Walt Disney signed original production cel from 'The Three Caballeros'
An original Disney painting on celluloid that was "actually used" in the Walt Disney Production of The Three Caballeros. The cel features Panchito, one of the films three protagonists (alongside Donald Duck and José Carioca). Walt Disney has personally signed below the cel: "MY BEST WISHES WALT DISNEY" in blue crayon. He's signed in his famous block capitols, the style of signature the company subsequently used as the Disney Company logo. The autograph was inscribed to the original owner but this has been carefully erased from the mount. You can see the original WDP (Walt Disney Productions) logo just above the signature. The total size of the piece is 30.5 x 33 cm, including the frame. In VG condition with light age toning and a couple of minor spots of soiling to the mount. Tiny edge tear to the top left of the mount, almost hidden by the frame. The original Courvoisier Galleries label is affixed to the back of the piece.
