Book Description

17 Feb 2000 Miller's collectors' guides
In the late 19th century Margaret Steiff first created toys fashioned from felt, velvet, plush and cloth. Since then soft toys have been produced in a range of animal, bird and character designs. This guide provides an introduction for enthusiasts - for ease of reference, the toys are organized by type. Each section includes photographs of items available at auctions, markets and fairs alongside a wealth of information on makers, designs, and collecting. "Fact Files" feature key aspects of each subject, provide tips on identification and collecting, and highlight the main characteristics of toys by different firms. Advice on care and restoration and where to buy is provided at the back of the book, as is a glossary of useful terms and suggestions for further reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative collector's guide 21 Jun 2000
By Sylvia - Published on
This new Miller's Guide is a very special one. Leyla Maniera and David Agnew present a various range of soft toys, classified in several chapters as animals, disney characters, comic characters, oddities, manufacterers, care & restoration. Many of the described toys are very unusual and you won't know many of them from other collector's guides. Beside nice photos, the descriptions contains informations about the manufacter, the history of origin and a valuation. This is the only point I would like to criticize: the valuations are not very helpful.
But summing up, it may be said that this soft toy guide is highly recommended!

This is mainly towards the high end soft toy collector. Very good book, too small, too little information but packs a punch!
