Enesco Then And Now: An Unauthorized Collector's Guide (Schiffer Book For Collectors)

If you thought that Enesco*r began with Precious Moments*r, this book will amaze you. Enesco is actually one of the oldest importing companies in the United States, with a history dating back to the late 1800s. Figural ceramic items imported from Japan in the 1950s and 1960s are among today's top collectibles and Enesco imported many highly collectible lines during this period, the most notable being Mother-in-the-Kitchen, or Prayer Lady, as it is commonly called. This book features a huge array of gift, collectible, and decorative items sold by Enesco, including figurines, planters, kitchenware, bells, banks, and head vases -- all shown with current market values. Early lines like Beaver Dam*r, Dearie is Weary*r, Golden Girls*r, and Winkin' Kitten*r are here, along with contemporary favorites like Country Cousins*r, Human Beans*r, Cherished Teddies*r, Coral Kingdom*r, and of course, Precious Moments*r. Also included is a useful chapter picturing collectible lines from other importing companies.This book, which contains over 1,000 pictures showing over 1,500 items, will help you identify Enesco's popular keepsakes and will become a useful and treasured addition to your collectibles library.

I specifically bought this book hoping it would feature the Enesco Coral Kingdom figurine collection, the book description stated it did but it only had one figure pictured out of close to 50 so it didn't help me at all. It did have some interesting items but it was an overview of a lot of different items, doesn't get too in depth. Thinking about returning it...

I was expecting a more comprehensive guide to the Enesco collections. Many product lines were shown, but not many examples of each. A lot of the pictures were darker than would be expected in a collectors guide.

Very helpful
