Book Royal Doulton Beswick Cartoon & Other Characters For Sale
Royal Doulton and Beswick Cartoon Classics and Other Character Figures
From Bonzo and Ooloo to The Wizard of Oz, this excellent volume follows Royal Doulton and Beswick's character figurine production from its beginnings in 1922 to the present. Laviously illustrated with photos of the figurines, back marks, dinnerware and the like, and further enhanced with comic strip drawings, production sketches and whatever else of interest that the author could drum-up, this book is a pleasure to look at for all generations, from the pre-readers to grandfather. After a number of thumb throughs, the reader will find that it is also a very-well written book, with descriptions of the history of the characters at the potters and in popular culture. Advice on collecting, biographies of the modelers, a rarity guide, and an excellent index add up to a delightful and informative book.
Characters include Bonzo and Ooloo, Pip, Squeak and Wilfred, and M I Hummel (Beswick made them during WWII), David Hand's Animaland, Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Joan Walsh Anglund, Kitty MacBride, Alice in Wonderland, The Lord of the Rings, Thelwell, Rupert Bear, Brambly Hedge, The Snowman, The Wind in the Willows, Thunderbirds, The Dandy and the Beano, Tom & Jerry, Droopy, The Flintstones, Top Cat, Paddington Bear, Noddy and Big Ear, and The Wizard of Oz. Privately published in the United Kingdom in 1998 and out-of-print. Difficult to find.
