It doesn't get any better! As shown on Antiques Roadshow. You are about to see a rare piece of comic history very seldom offered as very few remain in existence today.This was uncovered in a warehouse over 30 years ago. This is a vintage printing plate for Chip'N' Dale issue 47 pg 19 from 1956. Overall size is approx 14" x 18" framed. I have paired the original printing plate with the matching comic page actually printed from this very plate over 50 years ago to make one of the most unique collectibles that you will ever find! A real collection centerpiece for any Disney or Chip'N' Dale fan or collector. It features classic Disney artwork and pictures Chip & Dale. Unlike many annimation cells that you find produced in quantity in the 1990's, this is a vintage one-of-a-kind piece of American comic history. NOTE: The unique characteristic of this particular printing plate is that while I was able to save a couple of dozen Disney plates, I was only able to get one of Chip'N' Dale.
I have framed and matted this "museum quality" piece. Only one printing plate was made for each comic page and normally these were melted down after the comic was printed. The press plate has the issue and page number engraved along the border.
This is one of only very few to have survived the melting pot. This printing process is no longer used today so no more will ever be made. If you are looking for that unique addition to your Chip'N' Dale or Walt Disney collection, you have just found it. You will have a true one-of-a-kind collectible.I have a small selection of Warners Brothers (Bugs, Tweety, Porky, Daffy), Walter Lantz (Woody), and Walt Disney (Mickey & Donald) available.
