Description

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.
