Song of the South Production Cel and Production/Pre-Production Master Background with Walt Disney Signature 1946

Song of the South Production Cel and Production/Pre-Production Master Background with Walt Disney Signature (Walt Disney, 1946). "Everybody's got a laughin' place" sings Br'er Rabbit as he leads Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear to the "Laughin' Place" as he is held captive. Little do Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear know it's a trap filled with a bee hive! This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Br'er Rabbit. Great 6" image. Cel is trimmed to image and mounted to a clear cel of 9" x 7". This very rare production cel is on a trimmed hand-painted production/pre-production background of "The Laughin' Place." Wonderful hand-painted background in gouache on background board measuring 13" x 9.5". Back of background is labeled 2029, the film's production number. Bottom border of background is labeled 2029 as well. Backgrounds in this film were done by Ralph Hulett, Brice Mack, Ray Huffine, Edgar Starr, and Al Dempster. The cel and Master background are in a mat that is boldly hand-signed by Walt Disney. A bold large Walt Disney signature reads, "To Mike with Best Wishes Walt Disney" in Conté crayon. The setup with Walt Disney signature may have been an Art Props department studio gift. This rare piece is in a frame of 21" x 17" with a mat opening of 12.5" x 9". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork has some tape on background border, otherwise, Very Good condition. Walt Disney signature has a Phil Sears Letter of Authenticity on reverse of frame. One of the finest Song of the South setups we have seen!
