1938 Non-Disney Snow White "Coloring Set"

This Snow White Coloring Set was manufactured in New York by J. Pressman & Co. Inc. While not a Disney item, it was likely issued in 1938 to capitalized on the general release of the film. The illustration of Snow White on the box cover does bare a resemblance to Disney's version, including puffed shoulders on her dress.

The set includes water color paints with a wood palette, two metal bowls for water, Crayons, and four heavier stock cards (with images of the dwarfs and their cottage). Box is 14.5" x 9.5". Manufacturer no. 4227.

In the 1938 wholesale catalog for L. Gould & Co. of Chicago, several other Snow White crayon and painting "outfits" are listed. Again, they are not licensed by Disney, yet the illustration of the princess is definitely patterned after their version.
