Product description


Miller's Teddy Bears: A Complete Collector's Guide presents a unique opportunity for collectors to see bears that have never been photographed before. Private collections from around the world have provided a diverse and fascinating selection of bears for inclusion in the book, as well as gollies, bears' friends, bear memorabilia and the newest bears from today's leading bear manufacturers. World expert Sue Pearson uncovers the enormous range of bears available to the collector and gives practical advice on what to look out for - such as distinguishing between mohair or synthetic fibres and excelsior or kapok stuffing. The book introduces some very individual bears with their provenance, and looks at the various categories that appeal to the collecting market, such as coloured bears, musical bears and bear novelties. Almost every type of bear is appraised and discussed, from the first Steiff bears to present-day artist bears. The range of antique to modern bears ensures there is something for every type of bear collector.

A maker-by-maker guide covers all the principal manufacturers around the world and details key developments, highlights identifying features and points out what to look for and what to avoid. Checklists with essential identifying tips keep the collector on the right track. Also included is a glossary and a comprehensive guide to fairs, clubs and dealers around the world, plus how to look after and display your teddy bears. Miller's Teddy Bears: A Complete Collector's Guide is more than a valuable catalogue of information for the collector and enthusiast, it is also a celebration of the teddy bear that no bear lover can afford to be without.
