Gros Monti Postcard Series from Italy

A collection of 10 colorful Biancaneve postcards from 1940, printed by Gros Monti & Co. of Torino, Italy. Dimensions: approximately 10 x 15 cm.

The individual character artwork was repainted by Italian artists from the color-plates found in the 1938 Walt Disney's Sketch Book of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Similar character designs would be reused in England during World War II as part of a series of Collector Print Primer Cards.
