Original Production Cels - click here to find out more.
Production cels are the one-of-a-kind original cels that were used in the creation of an animated film or television show. Each has been hand-painted by studio artists on a piece of celluloid acetate, and has been photographed over a background painting to create a frame of the finished production.
Production cels are highly sought after by collectors, with very rare pieces from the early days of animation fetching prices in the tens, and even the hundreds of thousands of dollars. See Why So Few Vintage Pieces Have Survived for more information on the rarity of early production cels.
Production cels from the 1980’s and 90’s are available at considerably lower expense, but The Move To Computerized Animation has severely curtailed the supply of new artwork in the market, and has put upward pressure on prices of what is still available.
Production cels from the same film, or even the same scene, can have significantly different values depending on their desirability to collectors.
What is Conservation Glass?
Standard glass is suitable for most artwork in most homes. As ambient (indirect) sunlight and artificial light do not present a fading risk, most people do not require special UV filtering glass.
If you have a lot of direct sunlight in your home, you may want to upgrade your artwork purchase to conservation glass. Conservation glass filters out 97% of harmful UV rays and will prevent fading of signatures and artwork, as well as yellowing of paper.
The best thing to do is avoid hanging any art or photographs in direct sunlight. If you can't avoid direct sunlight, conservation glass is well worth the additional cost.
