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. 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. The Art Corner Label on the back is the Official Disney Certificates of Authenticity.
Ollie Johnston's first major assignment for the Disney company was Pinocchio.

This award was created by Roy E. Disney to honor individuals whose body of work has made a significant impact on the Disney entertainment legacy. Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston have co-authored four books about Disney animation and art. Disney Animation: Illusion of Life (1981) is considered a textbook of the art of Disney animation. Too Funny for Words (1987) covers the art of the physical gag in animation. Walt Disney's Bambi: The Story and the Film (1990) is a record of the making of the classic feature, and The Disney Villain (1994) is the decisive study of animated menace.
