Vintage Italian Snow White Decals by Presto

Collector Nunziante Valoroso shares this little piece of Italian memorabilia from the 1960s and 70s--a handsome set of Snow White decals produced by Presto in Milan. Presto had an exclusive license in Italy with Disney and continued to print character decals up until the 1980s. At that point, the license passed to the Pezzetti family in Milan and the decals, with the same pictures, became stickers.

Images and info courtesy of the Nunziante Valoroso Collection.

These particular images were made exclusively for the decal set, though they are a repainting of poses originally created by Tom Wood for the 1937 book Walt Disney's Complete Story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. See a reprint of this book in an earlier Archive entry.
