The Three Caballeros "José Carioca" Limited Edition Courvoisier Cel #2/250 (Walt Disney, c. 1944). This is a very rare Courvoisier limited edition cel featuring one of the stars of The Three Caballeros, José Carioca! The cel is hand-inked, hand-painted, and paired with an original hand-painted Courvoisier background. The piece bears the WDP stamp in the lower right corner of the cel. The artwork is from an edition of 250 pieces titled "José Carioca," and it is numbered only #2 out of the edition! The image of the character measures about 4" x 4.5" on the cel. The piece is framed with glass and matted, with a matboard aperture of 6" x 7.25" and an overall frame size of 14" x 15.5". On the back of the frame is a Courvoisier Certificate of Authenticity, which lists the title and number of the piece, as well as some general information about the Courvoisier Limited Edition program. The cel is in Fair to Good condition, with significant wear, including warping and staining. The frame is sold as-is.

SHIPPING: We strive to ship within 1 day of cleared payment. We treat every item we sell with the extra care it deserves. Cels, drawings and sculptures are packed so that they will stay safe during every step of the shipping process. Due to the packing materials we use our shipping prices may seem higher than other sellers who might put a cel into a tube or thin envelope. We are not making a profit on shipping. Only the cost we pay is passed along to you. Please let us know if you need to receive your purchase by a particular date. Email with any questions or concerns.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS TAKE NOTE: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up; do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. All Customs Forms will reflect the ACTUAL price that the bidder paid for the merchandise. [For example, I will not claim on the customs form that the bidder paid $10.00, if the bidder actually paid $30.00] Please do not ask us to do so.
Note: All items are shipped FOB. This means that the sellers (The Cricket Gallery’s) liability for the item ends upon our delivery of the package to the shipping agent. It is the Buyers responsibility to insure the package against loss, damages or other unforeseen circumstances. Should the Buyer want The Cricket Gallery, to provide insurance we will do so at the Buyer’s request in writing and upon the payment of an additional charge for such insurance. Buyers outside the USA are likewise responsible for insurance as well as all taxes, tariffs, customers and other charges imposed for international shipments.
