Buyer snaps up Snow White billboard

A scene from the Disney film Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

A large, colourful billboard from the 1937 release of the animated film Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs has been sold at auction for 10,755 dollars (£6,326).

Dallas, Texas-based Heritage Auctions would not identify the winning bidder, but said the rare billboard had been expected to sell for at least 10,000 dollars.

The 20x9ft billboard was printed in England to promote the Disney film there. It features three scenes, the main one showing a rosy-cheeked Snow White in front of a castle in her classic outfit with bright yellow skirt, surrounded by the dwarfs and other characters from the film.

The billboard had been in a private collection for more than a decade.
