Figural Dwarf Clock by J.A. Sural Hanau/Main

A figural clock was made in Germany in the 1950s featuring one of the dwarfs from Snow White. The glazed ceramic piece has an inset metal and glass wind-up clock (which is marked "Blessings"). The dwarf measures approximately 9" tall, and is made to be hung on a wall. A variant was also created with a freestanding base. Different pieces feature different paint color combinations, thus distinguishing one dwarf from another. Each is marked, "Walt Disney Production" along with the company's imprint, "Lizenztrager - J.A. Sural, Hanau/main".

The wall design.

The freestanding version has a separate stand.

Hake's listed this one on their website and in their Official Price Guide to Disney Collectibles, 2nd edition, 2007 (p.858).
