1938 Snow White Earl May Flower Advertising Envelope

This vintage envelope comes from the Earl E. May Seed Company of Shenandoah, Iowa. Measures 11.125” x 7.5". Imprint reads, "© 1938 Walt Disney Enterprises." Snow and the gang are pictured in a backyard with the dwarfs in amongst seven separate garden patches, each with his own type of flower.

The front panel reads, “Earl May presents Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in Flowers for Your Garden.” It also includes a letter from Dopey with pricing info for fall 1938--get 96 Dutch bulbs for only $2.95. The mailing label is still attached, pre-zip code era.

  1. I really love this - I will have to keep an eye open for one.

    1. I've only seen this the one time on ebay. It must be rather rare. Isn't the artwork great?
