1960s Enesco Snow White Figurine Set

In the 1960s, Enesco created a legion of Snow White glazed ceramic figurines that were made in Japan. Each is bottom-marked, "© Walt Disney Productions" and usually includes a foil Enesco sticker or a "Japan" sticker. Some still have their character name tags too. Snow White is approximately 5.5" tall. The dwarfs around 4.5".

These figurines, along with a boatload of other Enesco products, appeared in the Merchandise Supplement to the 1967 Snow White pressbook.
