Donald's Penguin (1939)|
Courvoisier cel of Donald Duck and Tootsie.
In a rare moment of sweetness Donald embraces his new penguin friend in this beautiful Courvoisier cel.
The framed piece measures 16.75" x 16.75" with the aperture measuring 7.5" x 8.4".
Cel has become slightly wavy which is common for vintage animation cels and this has caused some light reflection that is visible in the web image only and is not on the actual piece. There is some darkened glue residue from the cel which can be seen above Donald’s hat as the cel has separated slightly from the background. The paint has faded slightly and there is some minor paint mottling and lifting throughout both characters but no paint loss. As slightly visible in the web image, there is some cracking in Donald’s left eye darkening along the crack’s edges. There is minor cracking in Donald’s right eye. Also visible in the web image, there is a dark brown discoloration of 0.25" long at Donald’s left collar. There are specks and small areas of light lifting but no paint loss in Donald’s beak, mouth, hat, eyes and Tootsie’s head, wings and stomach.
Framing was done prior to its arrival at WWA thus the list price is reflective of the art only--the piece comes with the frame pictured. There is no change in price due to the frame--it can be de-framed upon request at purchase but will not change the price of the piece.
