(Walt Disney Studios, 1939-40) An original animation desk created for background artists at the Walt Disney Studios. Designed by Kem Weber for the new Burbank studio in 1940, this unique design helps show that different artists at the studio had different needs, and in designing the furniture for the new studio, Weber made sure to include features that would accommodate everyone. This desk includes a few very rare and seldom seen details, including a drawer with an original ceramic paint brush holder inside and a few miscellaneous art supplies. These original Kem Weber desks are an exceptionally rare part of Walt Disney animation history. This particular desk came from the estate of Disney Legend and Imagineer Wathel Rogers, who most likely bought the desk from the studio during a later refurnishing. The desk measures approximately 72.5" wide, 32" deep, and 71.5" tall. The condition is very good with some expected surface wear from studio use. This item will require special shipping arrangements, please contact us for inquiries and estimates.
