Vintage Snow White Ornaments


Officially licensed by Disney, these delicate ornaments are made of paper and glitter. The set includes Snow White (6" tall) and all seven of the dwarfs (5.5").  According to Hake's, dates from the 1950s.

The box is colorfully illustrated and has "Walt Disney Production" printed on it.




The ornaments each came with a hanging string and a paper label that reads "© W.D.P. Container Made in Germany."

The ornament also came filled with a surprise. The heads on each of the dwarfs could be removed, and the round body cavity held candy. Snow White had a cavity in her dress and the candy was accessed from the bottom.
