(Walt Disney Studios, 1955) Original production cel setup featuring the main characters from Lady and the Tramp, showing them sharing a plate of spaghetti together as they famously do in what has become the best-known scene in the film. The character cels have been trimmed to image and applied to a hand-painted custom prepared background, accomplished at a later date, to create a marvelous setup for display. The Lady image (trimmed from the actual Bella Notte scene) measures 5 x 5, Tramp (trimmed from another scene) measures 2.75 x 5.75, and table measures 11 x 7.75, with overall dimensions of 16 x 11.75. In fine condition. Though the background is custom prepared and not production used, it is hand-painted and extremely vibrant and well-done—this gorgeous setup brings to life the iconic and oft-replicated Bella Notte scene that climaxes in the ‘spaghetti kiss,’ an iconic moment in American cinema.
