Snow White appears in Sotheby's 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' Auction Cel

Twenty-three years ago today, Sotheby's auction book (from Wednesday, June 28, 1989) featured the art of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In this particular cel set up, several other Disney characters make an appearance including the marching Dwarfs and Snow White with the Old Witch. Asking price was $5000-$7000 (USD).



The Dwarfs march out of subway and Snow White helps the "old woman" next to Cindy's wishing apples...

  3. Neat! You should check out some of the incredible Snow White cel setups that are for auction through Profiles in History. I love the one of the old witch in her dungeon, and the other where she is dipping the apple in the poison potion!
