Red "Disney Classics" Dairy Glass

This vintage Snow White glass tumbler was probably a dairy give-away premium. Snow stands in the center with dwarf heads on either side. Red graphics. Marked "© 1938 W.D. Ent." Measures approximately 4.75" tall x 2.75" across.

According to the 1993 Tomart's Price Guide to Character & Promotional Glasses, this Snow White tumbler was apparently part of a rare dairy premium series called Disney Classics. The total number of glasses in the collection is unknown. Tomart dates the series to 1940-41, probably because it included a Pinocchio glass. Pinocchio, of course, didn't premiere until 1940. However, since the Snow White glass is marked "W.D. Ent. 1938", it clearly was released at an earlier date.
