This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . Now that computer games have come to stay, tin toys have become obsolete for today’s children. For those of us who remember them from times past, these tin toys can transport us back to our childhoods; they call up a vision of a time we thought we had already forgotten. They also bear witness to history; they have survived wars and crises, and tell us something of the fashions, colors and tendencies of their times. This book will be of special interest to anyone fascinated by early space travel and technology, those who simply want to wax nostalgic about a bygone era of their youth, and of course to collectors and fans of 50s and 60s tin toys. The roots of today’s toys can be seen in these precursors, notably in the early transformer robots. Taken from collector Teruhisa Kitahara’s vast collection, which is on display in many museums in Japan, the tin toys featured here are quite rare and give a wonderful overview of this era in the history of toys. A must for any toy lover! Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Antiques & Collectibles; Japan; ISBN: 3822850624. ISBN/EAN: 9783822850626.

Buttonhooks And Shoehorns
Brandon, Sue

Shire Publications,  1984.

Spine is uncreased. Cover is protected in clear, self-adhesive laminate. Pages are lightly tanned. he everyday need for a buttonhook began in the early nineteenth century when it was used, as an accessory to masculine fashion, to fasten stiff leather button-boots. By the 1880s, lines of buttons had become fashionable on ladies' gloves, clothing and footwear, and the development of the feminine market encouraged the production of 'fashion buttonhooks' in the wide variety of sizes, shapes and materials that are described in this book, and which can still be found by collectors today. Shoehorns were frequently produced as companions to buttonhooks, but although the latter had fallen into disuse by the 1940s, shoehorns still exist in most shoe shops and some homes to facilitate the slipping on of footwear. A 'schoying horne' was first mentioned in the fifteenth century and the imagination exercised around the well-known basic shape has resulted in the variety so interesting to present day collectors.

The book is written primarily for the amateurs so that it is desirable to create interest in everything that comes within the category of home furnishings. Grace and beauty are expressed in many forms, and fine wares and not the rightful possessions of any class or creed; but ignorance of what may be accomplished with limited resources is alone responsible for much distasteful furnishing. -- from the introduction, page 1. Pages 173 onwards are probably more of interest to the modern day antique dealer what with the hallmarks, the pottery marks on monograms, and depictions of the various styles of furniture through history.

Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

Herbert Jenkins, London, 1969. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition (ex-library)/Good. First Edition. Previous owner purchased the book from a library and has blacked out any library stamp, the rear paste down has been glued to the rear end page, and the dust jacket was price clipped, and then re-stickered by the publisher with a new price. The previous owner has also used marking pen to imitate a tint on the bottom edge of the text block, probably to cover over a library stamp. Apart from this damage, the book internally is clean and bright. Illustrated with colour plates, black-and-white photographs, and hand drawn copies of the marks and tools, the book is invaluable in settling the argument on whether one company was naughty, and made their "identification marks" intentionally similar to another company stop no matter that one company was in Wales, and the other in England.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
