Most people familiar with Swann's poster auctions are aware that we do not usually dabble in movie posters. But, on occasion, when an item is scarce and important enough, we will consider including it in one of our auctions.
Tomorrow, as part of our annual summer auction of Vintage Posters, we are pleased to offer two extremely rare Walt Disney movie posters. These first-run images for Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Pinocchio (1940) are among a choice selection of film posters in the sale.
Swann President and Poster Specialist Nicholas Lowry says, "we are excited to offer such rare gems from the golden age of Disney collectibles."
The Vintage Posters exhibition is open today until 6:00 PM. The two-session auction will take place tomorrow at 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM. The Disney posters will be offered in the sale's afternoon session.
