"Snow White" (1937; 1994) [Series] - Commemorative VHS Tape Litho

A series of postings of "Snow White" items in the Cowan Collection [click Here to see the contact sheet of items in the postings].

While not necessarily "antique," this 1994 lithograph that came with the special "Snow White" video tape does reflect the early stages of Disney's interest in the animation art market. In the 1980's, Disney art was appearing in many of the larger auction houses and the art was pulling some pretty large dollars. In 1987, we picked up Disney's first "Limited Edition" (500 in the series) from "Fantasia." Other LEs followed. Then we saw the introduction of Sericels and production runs of 2,000+.

If I remember right, we had to order the tape in advance. Go to the store to pick it up. Then someone went into the back and returned with the Lithograph. It certainly gave the impression that it was "special."

This "suitable for framing" litho is actually quite nice looking -- very good color saturation, nice action and good character expressions.

  1. how much is it worth

  2. Hard to say what it is worth. My guess would be in the $25 range -- probably less. But it's a colorful piece that you can display anywhere in a low humidity environment (like where we live in Colorado) where you simply can't hang cels...

  3. it should be worth more like in the thousandths.
