Original Production Animation Cel of Cinderella's Coach from "Cinderella," 1950

Updated: May 28, 2018

Original hand inked and hand painted production animation cel of Cinderella's Coach, Gus, Jaq, and two other mice as Horses, Major the Horse as the Coachman, and Bruno the Dog as the Footman set on a lithographic background from "Cinderella," 1950, Walt Disney Studios; Size - Coach & Horses: 5 x 1 1/2", Image 5 x 6 3/4"; Unframed.

The 1950 Walt Disney feature film "Cinderella" was based on the French version of the tale by Charles Perrault, entitled "Cinderella" and written in 1698. The film was the second in the series of great Princess films developed by Disney, the first being Snow White in 1937. The character of Cinderella is usually front and center in the pantheon of Disney Princess merchandise, perhaps because she is the only Princess not to be of a noble blood line who ended up marrying a Prince and becoming royalty.

One night, Major along with the dog Bruno who are sleeping in the Tremaine Barn, are awakened and watch Cinderella run out into the garden wearing the pink dress that was destroyed by Anastasia and Drizella. Cinderella's Fairy Godmother appears and changes a pumpkin into a coach. Major expects to be the horse that pulls the coach, but instead the Fairy Godmother transforms him into the Coachman. Bruno is changed into the Footman, and Gus, Jaq, and two other mice are transformed into horses. After Cinderella is magically transformed into a beautiful white ballgown, she boards the coach and off she goes to the King's Ball.

This is a wonderful cel of Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach, Gus, Jaq and two other mice as horses, Major as the Coachman, and Bruno as the Footman. Cels of Cinderella's Coach are extremely rare, and hardly ever appear on the open market, and this is spectacular image of the horse drawn carriage with amazing hand painting and delicate hand inking. A great opportunity to have a piece of animation art history from the Walt Disney masterpiece, "Cinderella!"
