Belgian Biscuit Tin - Snow White with Forest Animals

In the late 1930s and early 40s, the European merchandising for Walt Disney Enterprises made a big splash with Belgian cookie, candy and bakery manufacturers. Numerous collectible tins, books, stickers, and other Snow White items came out of this pre-war era.

Here's one of the several cookie tins that were produced by J. Schuybroek. Measures 20 x 33 x 6.5 cm. Key lock lid. Copyright reads "PAR AUT. WALT. DISNEY--MICKEY MOUSE S.A. ETABL. J. SCHUYBROEK S.A. HOBOKEN--ANVERS."

  1. Maybe a little rough around the edges, but I agree Connie--this would have been quite a looker in its day.
