1938 Boxed Case of Snow White Dairy Glasses

Here's a rare find, a complete case of Snow White glasses from 1938. The box contains twenty-four 9 ounce pieces, each 4.5" tall. Manufactured by Libbey Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio under license with the Disney Company. Produced for the Kraft-Phenix Cheese Corporation.

The tumblers would have been purchased by dairy companies and used as give-away premiums to attract customers. Eight different designs feature Snow and each of the dwarfs. See an earlier Archive entry for more details on these four-line verse glasses.

The ebay seller mentioned that this case was purchased at an estate sale in Baltimore, MD. The box was found stored in an old barn.
