Vintage Snow White Lunchbox, circa 1938

A deep litho tin with removable lid and carrying handles. This "biscuit" tin was originally sold with cookies and then could be re-used as a lunch box. Circa 1938, it was made by the Belgian company J. Schuybroek of Hoboken-Anvers and is marked "Par Aut Walt Disney Mickey Mouse S.A." in each of the different scenes on lid and four sides. Artwork is based on Gustaf Tenggren's original Snow White sketches. Container measures 5" x 8" x 4" tall (20.3 x 12.7 x 9.8 cm).

  2. Yes, me too. There's a number of Snow White "biscuit" tins that were produced in Belgium during the late 1930's. I'll be posting more pics in the near future.
