Christie's Century of Teddy Bears
From its conception over a
century ago right up until today, the teddy bear has always been
universally acknowledged as the toy that symbolizes childhood.
Christie's Century of Teddy Bears is the fascinating story of this
faithful companion who has played such an intimate role in people's
lives: accompanying families fleeing their homes during both World Wars;
sustaining the infantry in the trenches; and escaping with the evacuees
in the Blitz.
From the initial inspiration made by Steiff in Geingen, Germany, to
bears created today, this guide describes the teddy's fascinating
history and explores why it's still the most endearing and collectable
of all toys. Featuring scores of spectacular, full-color reproductions
from such great manufacturers as Steiff, Chad Valley, Bing, Bruin, and
many others, Christie's Century of Teddy Bears charts the captivating
rise of the teddy bear during the past 100 years. This unique book also
tells the stories of individual bears, like the Teddy Girl--whose
engaging looks and remarkable experiences during both World Wars
commanded the highest preice ever for a teddy bear in a Christie's
Superbly illustrated with images from the Christie's archives and
private collections, this book is an essential gift for history lovers,
nostalgia fans, and anyone who has ever loved a teddy bear.
