Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. OUR NOTES: In our modern, politically-correct, gender-neutral world, perhaps it is a bit dangerous to classify certain vintage toys as girls toys. And yet, most housekeeping toys were primarily purchased for and played with by girls, although many a boy joined in the fun of pretend! Covering from 1870-1970, this book helps collectors and dealers identify and value vintage housekeeping toys - those which are normally called girls toys. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only book currently in print which uses this approach to group, classify and study this important topic. Topics covered include: Toy Stoves, both cast iron & metal & their cookware General toy kitchenware, grinders, utensils, mixers, etc. Mini furniture, kitchen pantry, cupboards, refrigerators, sinks, etc. Tin cups & saucers, canister sets, baking ovens & supplies Toy booms, sweepers, toy washing machines (including wringer types) Irons, ironing boards, table ware, dining sets, china, tea sets Toy silverware, toy household & doll furniture & related Tin litho doll houses, toy sewing machines & much more --- John Kincaid, Collector Bookstore PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: This delightful new pocket guide is sure to bring back childhood memories. Who could forget following mommy around the house doing daily chores and cooking in the kitchen using toy sweepers, dishes, stoves, and more pretending to be just like Mommy. Kitchenware, metal and plastic tableware, stoves, household furnishings with name-brand products, and more are showcased and all toys shown are made in the USA. Readers will enjoy the sections devoted to Baking Day, Cleaning Day, and Washday, viewing some of their old favorite toys that are now hot collectibles. Makers which are highlighted include: Arcade, Amsco, Banner, Hubley, Irwin, Kenton, Kiddie Brush & Toy, Kilgore, Marx, Ohio Art, Plasco, J. & E., Stevens, Wolverine, Wyandotte, and other manufacturers are highlighted in the book. Vintage advertisements and catalog pages supplement the almost 300 color photographs. Take a trip down memory lane and learn more about American history in this fact-filled, fun guide for collectors. 2007 values.
