Based on the Brothers Grimm German fairy tale, the animated feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was released on December 21, 1937 by Walt Disney Productions. This timeless film is the earliest example of a Disney animated feature and won Walt Disney an honorary Oscar at the 11th Academy Awards.

Considered by the United States Library of Congress as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant,” Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was selected in 1989 for preservation in the National Film Registry. Among many other prestigious rankings, Disney’s transformation of the fairy tale has also resulted in numerous home video releases, theme park attractions, video games, Broadway musicals and has even inspired fine jewelry designs.

Lot 232 is a rare example of a ‘Dopey’ charm, likely originally part of a Snow White charm bracelet by Cartier. The Disney 14k gold charm bracelets date back to 1937 and were advertised that year with a price tag of $100. The nostalgia, wonder, and awe of Disney is captured through the brightly enameled and delightful Dopey character who universally recognized and loved.
