Although I can see some readers love the history aspect, I got this strictly for a reference guide for pricing and description of the figurine I had and it was little to no help at all, and was just a repeat of info I found for free online.
This little book was packed with a lot of information.I enjoy reading is my favorite pastime.You will not be dissapointed in this book.Shows a lot of marks I did not know existed.Thanks for a great book.
One question I was left with after reading this was whether the author Eric Stauffer had any relation to the artist Eric Stauffer. Perhaps this is too difficult to identify as the author points out there are questions surrounding whether the true name of the artist was really Eric Stauffer at all. The idea is that perhaps it was used to imply the Arnart 'fakes' were actually from Germany.The author also touches on other questionable practices such as duplicate numbers and the difficulty in identifying sets.This is a quick read with detailed historical facts to help you identify figurines or at a minimum, understand why you are unable to make a final determination.- Is your figurine a copy, a fake, a collectible?- What's more valuable the fake or authentic figurine?- What's worth more a figurine with an 'ink' bottom, a sticker, or a string label?- How can historical times help identify your figurine?I'd recommend this be read by collectors, art students, and anyone looking to identify that porcelain display of 'grandma's' or their own figurine sitting on a shelf.The "Antique Road Show," street fairs, and flea markets have us all so focused on monetary value. Perhaps this piece will remind us that we should buy something for its beauty, rather than what it might be worth.
Don't waste your $.99. The information in this so-called 'book' is useless. There is no true pricing info - just a general range of prices in what they sell for...no indications of size or anything. ALL OF THIS INFORMATION can be found by using Google to look up general history. THIS is a total SCAM!
