Super Cute Original Production cel from My little Pony: Pony Tales. If you're unfamiliar with animation cels, they are hand painted frames of animation that were used to make an animated series of film. Each production cel or sketch represents part of the movement process and are hand painted or hand drawn by animators so no two are exactly alike. They're a lot like movie props. :)
This is a great shot of Starlight, a single layer on standard sized western acetate it looks like it's labeled SJF but that doesn't make a lot of sense to it's more possible it's just written in a way only the original animator understands. It's in nice shape overall but does have some poor studio copy on some of the lines in her tail and some minor fading, as well as some minor marks and abrasions on the unpainted acetate. All in all the sort of shape you'd expect to see for a cel of this vintage. This is a single frame of hand painted animation and corresponds to exactly what you see on screen! This is a really lovely shot of Starlight and would make a great addition to your cel or pony collection!
