Snow White Figurines by Zaccagnini

In post World War II Italy, ceramics manufacturer, Zaccagnini, started creating Disney character figurines for export to the States. According to Hake's Americana & Collectibles, a contract was signed with Disney in 1947 which would run for over a decade. The pieces were hand-painted with a glazed finish. Today they are highly sought after by collectors in the field.

The Snow White figures were made in both a larger and smaller size set. Large Snow 9" tall, dwarfs 6"; small Snow 7", dwarfs around 4".
