1938 Bosco 'Snow White' Dairy Glasses

Based in New Jersey, Bosco started manufacturing chocolate syrup in 1928. A decade later during the premiere run of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the company released a set of 3.5" tall promotional glasses. The character graphics are the same that were used on the larger 4-line verse glasses issued by dairy companies during this time. "Bosco Glass" is printed on back side.

Measures 3" in diameter at opening.

Eight glasses in all--Snow White and each of the dwarfs. The film's title is printed along the bottom front with a "© W.D." imprint. The dwarfs' names also appear vertically.

Bosco offered Mickey Mouse and other Disney character glasses as well.
