Advertising Art of Steiff - Teddy Bears and Playthings

£19.99

Product description

All lovers of Steiff dolls & toys will be delighted by this compilation of antique Steiff advertisements which were run in the popular German illustrated newspaper Illustrirte Zeitung between the years 1911 & 1929.

Every collector will enjoy finding favorite bears & toys in the ads -- as an aid to dating them, to finding out their original costs & to see how they were originally promoted.

A nostalgic look back at the playthings of yesterday, this group of ads, augmented by postcards of the period, give us a clue to the variety & creativity of the children's toys made by this famous German company & partially explain the reverence with which these toys are held today.

A fascinating look into the history of the company through their advertisements

Good clean condition - there is some wear and tears to the d/j
