Collector Bookstore Notes:
Cover vintage the teddy bears from the 1920s to the 1970s. Particular attention is given to notable makers, such as Steiff, Bing, Chiltern and others.
The ultimate compendium of the ultimate companions.
It's well known that President Roosevelt catapulted the teddy bear into American culture, but, in fact, the history of the teddy bear is rich and began in Germany. Today, teddy bears are big business at retail stores, on the web and among collectors, and their appeal is worldwide.
In this authoritative reference book Judith Miller includes archival illustrations that mark the teddy bear's history from the 1920s to the 1970s, when bear artists and artisans took over from the traditional manufacturers, many of which had shut their doors. The book also features specially commissioned photographs of adorable teddy bears from public and private collections, and it gives information about the many styles, designers and makers, from antique Steiff bears to modern limited-edition bears. All of the important manufacturers and crafters of teddy bears are covered, including Bing, Chad Valley, Farnell, Ideal, Merrythough, Schuco and, of course, Steiff.
A Collector's Guide to Teddy Bears is a sweet homage to the teddy bear as a child's best friend. As a comprehensive resource on this highly sought-after collector's item, it will appeal to the many thousands of fans and serious collectors.
