Beswick Snow White Figurines

In 1954, London pottery manufacturer, Beswick, produced this glazed ceramic Snow White figurine, #1332A. Unfortunately, it's resemblance to the Disney princess is lacking. As a result, the figure would be discontinued the following year and a new piece would take its place.

In 1955, the new Snow White was released, #1332B. The hair and facial features are more true. She stands about 14 cm (5.5") high.

Most Beswick figures have the bottom stamp imprint but not all.

The complete set.
