Lot 1050: (Walt Disney Studios, circa 1934-1936) Original first version test cel featuring Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, created circa 1935, showing her in a long pink dress with a blue bow in her hair. This rarity is on a full animation cel, complete with peg holes and a cel number at the bottom right, not to be mistaken for a color model. Image measures 2.25 x 5, with overall dimensions of 12.25 x 9.75. In fine condition. This is the earliest example of a Snow White production cel that we have ever seen. Walt Disney changed this design of the princess because he felt it was too 'cartoony'—too reminiscent of Betty Boop—to be used for final production in a more serious film. This may be the earliest animated Snow White cel in existence. An extremely rare historical piece. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 466 Wednesday, 9th December 2015 Estimate: $4000-6000
