Italian Postcard-like Prints, c.1950

These vintage Snow White prints were produced in Italy and date from the 1950s. The art for the first two comes from the work of Gustaf Tenggren.

The dwarfs realize the "monster" is really Dopey, from a Tom Wood illustration.

On the back of each is a stamp for the Santiano Art Shop in Turin (Torino). The cards appear to have been cut from a larger sheet.

Special thanks to the Fabio Cassella Collection and to Nunziante Valoroso for sharing these images and information.
