1960s Dwarfs Pencil Holder from Disneyland

A Happy glazed ceramic pencil holder from Disneyland. Measures 4" tall x 2.5" x 2". Made in Japan. Dates from the 1960s. Other dwarfs were produced too.

Some online sellers have referred to these figures as cigarette holders. However, a Doc and a couple of Bashful pieces are pictured on page 865 of Hake's Official Price Guide to Disney Collectibles, 2nd edition, 2007. The text on the front base of one Bashful reads, "May I Hold Your Pen."

"May I Hold Your Pen" figure. Disneyland logo printed along top of hat. This actually looks like Happy to me, but Hakes calls him Bashful.
