1960s Snow White 3D Postcards

This 3D Snow White postcard comes from the Michael Filippello Collection and was purchased on ebay back in the 1990s. It's not marked with a copyright date, but it was produced in the 1960s, along with  several other Disney "lenticular" cards--some of those bearing a 1966 date in Roman numerals. Sold at Disneyland. Measures approximately 4.125 x 5.75".

Nothing on the back except, "Printed in Japan".

Generously donated to the Filmic Light by the Michael Filippello Collection.

A second Snow White 3D postcard is shared here from the Nunziante Valoroso Collection. Manufactured by Toppan Top Stereo and printed in Germany.

Nunziante mentioned that while these lenticular cards date from the 1960s, they were also reprinted in very recent years. "Not hard to still find them here in Italy in some shops."

Another printing of this card with a different back.

Special thanks to Michael and Nunziante for sharing their Snow White postcards with us.
