Probably the most expensive item in my collection at this time.
This is an actual, honest-to-God production cel used in the filming of Disney's Peter Pan (1953) of a red-headed mermaid splashing a shell-wielding Wendy on a rock.
The inset is a handwritten cel identification number, I believe. C-43. I don't remember the scene and sequence (I have it on a CoA around my closet someplace) but on the DVD it is Chapter 15, timeframe 38:03:22 or so (that's minutes, seconds, frames.) The photo doesn't neccessarily do the cel justice, of course. It is pristine and I'm doing my best to keep it in a safe place. (No it is not for sale! Not unless I can afford another one from selling it.
I'm posting this mostly because I'm trying to think of the best way to come up with a background for it before framing. How do people often display these works of lost animation art? Is a background even appropriate, or is it better to display the cel just as is? Anyone know? Please comment!
