Roma Tea Tin

This vintage Roma Tea tin was manufactured by Alex Harvey Ltd. in Auckland. It depicts Disney's Snow White characters in their earliest appearance as designed by Gustav Tenggren. Tin dates from circa 1938.

Lid closed...

And open...
This Tale of Snow White and the Jealous old Crone
Now ends up with Joy and Laughter
The kiss of the Prince wakes Snow White on the Throne
And They All Live most Happy Thereafter.

Front and back panels...

Side panels including the Witch at Cauldron illustration seen in previous Snow White's Adventures post.
