1938 Snow White Print Handkerchiefs

In addition to the many embroidered handkerchiefs (earlier post) that were produced during the initial run of Snow White, a myriad of printed hanky designs were also available. White linen with multi-color character artwork. They typically measure about 8.5" square. All are marked with the imprint, "W.D. Ent." and some with "1938" as well. According to Cecil Munsey's 1974 Disneyana book (p.46), the Bernhard Wolf Company of New York was the manufacturer.

Snow White on horseback as dwarfs and bunnies look on. (No Sneezy, presumably since he would be the one using the handkerchief.)
