1960s Enesco "Storage Barrel" Pencil Holders/Sharpeners

A series of three figural "Storage Barrel" pencil holders was issued by Enesco in the 1960s. These included Dopey, Happy, and Doc. Hand-painted glazed ceramic. A sharpener is located in the lower front. Etched text on the back reads, "Crayons Pencils". The bottom has a "© Walt Disney Productions" ink-stamp plus a foil Enesco label. They measure approximately 4" tall. Made in Japan.




Doc is pictured on page 865 of Hake's Official Price Guide to Disney Collectibles, 2nd edition, 2007.

These storage barrels were part of a large collection of Snow White ceramic figural pieces listed on page 8 of the Snow White Merchandising Supplement to the 1967 US Pressbook.
