I would love to find this piece of American History a new home. 

This has been one of my favorite items for over the last 15 years. It is time for me to let it go to a new home where it can be cared for and loved as much as I loved it.

Here is a 100% original production cel from the Disney Movie "Pinocchio", Released February 7, 1940.
This cel was used in the making of the animated movie "Pinocchio", and every cel created is a "One of a Kind" piece of art, a true piece of Americana. If you are a animation cel or Disney collector, then I do not need to tell you what you are looking at.
THIS IS A TRUE PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY.
This cel is of Pinocchio at the end of the music segment "I've got no strings" and he is surrounded by the Russian dancer puppets.
This is a Courvoisier multi cel setup. It has been re-framed in a museum quality frame with UV glass.
This is a very large image. The cel image is 7 1/2"x 7 1/4". The frame size is 19 1/2" x 18 3/4".
On the original matte, on the left you can faintly see written a title: "I've Got No Strings On Me!". On the right side you will see a signature that looks like Walt Disney.

Although it may look like it, the signature is not consistent with Walt Disney's autograph. When these were originally sold, it was common practice that a studio artist would sign for Walt.

It is believed to be the work of Disney artist Hank Porter who commonly signed for Walt.

The condition of this amazing piece is as Mint as they come for the age, no paint separations or cracks can be found on the cel, it has been well cared for all of these years. There is one very small mark on the background, as it appears that one layer of cel has moved from it's original position, but it is hard to see and does not take away from this wonderful piece of history. The top cel of the strings, has shifted slightly over the years. If you look at the photos you will see the usual waviness of the celluloid and any spots seen are light reflections.

This is a must have for any Pinocchio or Disney fan. This will be the center piece of your collection.
