1938 Framed Print of Dopey from "Snow White"

This is a framed print of Dopey from the movie, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". This was given to me by my Grandmother when I was about 20 years old, along with the rest of the set, which includes all of the dwarfs and Snow White herself. According to Disney's Director of Archives, Dave Smith, the set was made by licensee Artisto, Inc., in 1938-1939. Artisto was only licensed to to produce these during that one-year period, and these framed pictures were all that they were licensed to produce. These framed pictures were sold for 10 cents each back in 1938. I suspect that they are worth a lot more now. The frame is of wood, and the print looks like watercolor on canvas.
