A production cel of the Old Hag offering Snow White the poisoned red apple has tempted bidders at Heritage Auctions' November 20-24 Animation Art Signature Auction in Beverly Hills.
Capturing a defining moment in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), the hand-inked cel set up sold for $26,290.
As is common with animation sales, Disney memorabilia dominated bids. However, an original colour model cel from the Beatles' Yellow Submarine (1968), which shows all members of the band complete with annotations on their costumes, sold for $14,340.
Paul Fraser Collectibles has animation art for sale from Charles Schulz, Friz Freleng and Bill Hanna, as well as a Walt Disney's World of Fantasy book signed by Disney animators and voice actors.
