1938 Two-Color Snow White Dairy Glasses

In an earlier post, we covered the popular "four-line verse" Snow White glass tumblers from 1938. The were used as give-away premiums by farms and dairy companies. This less common "two-color" series utilized the same exact design--including the rhymes--but with a two color treatment rather than only one. Manufactured by Libbey Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio.

Snow White (blue and white).

The two-color series was available to the public in department stores, so probably not as a dairy premium. An eight-piece set could be purchased by retailers through wholesale catalogs like this 1938 edition from N. Shure Company of Chicago. The wholesale price for the complete set was just 55¢. Now that's a bargain! It shipped with a store display box (see it in an earlier Archive entry).

Bashful (orange and green).

Sleepy (red and white).

Sneezy (blue and gold).

Happy (green and white).

Doc (red and gold).

Dopey (light and dark green).

Grumpy (orange and black).
