Post Huskies Cereal Bowl

Made by Vitrock Glass Company, this appears to be the bowl offered by Post as a premium with its Huskies cereal. It's interesting because the illustration of Snow White inside the bowl is different from that in the ad (below). My guess is that this is the actual bowl from 1938. The artist's rendering for the ad was probably produced before the bowl artwork. But to be sure, more research is needed.

UPDATE February 2014:

Here's a look at a bowl where the inner Snow White graphic is in much better shape.
