It's very rare to have a Mint Condition Art Corner cel.Buyers should be aware that this is a used cel and will always be imperfect and. Should be expected with this kind of cel.

Buyers are responsible for understanding that this is vintage animation artwork that has characteristics that are NOT NEW. This is an antique, that is in typical antique condition. This is a vintage original production cel. It is vintage, not new. It is considered to be an antique.If you are not an experienced collector of Art Corner cels then this is not recommended for you, the novice collector. There is no such thing as a'mint' condition Art Corner cel Set-up.
Inspect closely, might have areas of missing paint or cracking which is Normal wear for a 60 years old hand painted cel. Vintage cels can have peeling or cracking paint.They can even be wavy........ Just the age of the cel, it's all normal wear. Unfortunately, rookie buyers have un-realistic expectations of perfections.....
That's the perfect piece for you. Personally, as animation art collector of over 40 years. I LOVE Art Corner cels. Their very existence is because Walt himself thought they were artwork and he made them available to the masses.They are one of a kind. Each was hand painted by Top Disney talent, the finest Disney artists at the studio. Not some guy in a theme park, in a dark corner of a shop, doing drawings for 5 bucks. Simply speaking they are the ultimate Disneyland collectible.
