Fantastic Walt Disney Autograph on a Reproduction Cel of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”

Very rare Walt Disney signed reproduction cel from his animation classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.” Beautiful full “Walt Disney” signature, with a flourish, appears on the mat surrounding the illustration from “Snow White,” Disney’s exceptionally successful and groundbreaking film. Despite Hollywood snickering that “Snow White” would be “Disney’s folly” and bankrupt his studio, the prescient animator forged ahead to create the first-ever fully animated feature film. Three years into its making, when resources ran dry, he had to secure emergency funding by showing a rough cut of the film to bank executives. When it finally premiered in December 1937, Disney silenced his critics through the audience’s reaction, which gave the film a standing ovation and singularly ushered in the Golden Age of Animation. This reproduction cel, though not original, is an early rendering, circa 1940’s and measures 10″ x 8″. Cream-colored mat measures 16.75″ x 15.75″. In very good condition, with light creasing to the mat.  Rare to find a Walt Disney autograph on a Snow White cel.  Sold for $6,500.
