Overview

The first broad based survey and price guide for dog memorabilia of all breeds, this book presents a remarkable array of dog-related items dating from the early nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. From portraits to postcards, Staffordshire to celluloid, Berlin work to buttons, everything in this compendium of over 430 color photographs relates to dogs and the people who loved them. Conveniently divided into eight collecting areas—art, ceramics, metalwork, photography and paper, wood, needlework and textiles, jewelry, and miscellaneous—the antiques and collectibles clearly displayed and fully described in this enjoyable book represent accessible, affordable items for the mid-range collector. Also included is an introductory essay tracing the popularity of various dog breeds over an eighty year period. A useful bibliography for further research is paired with a detailed index, and value estimates are included for all items as well.
