Bangzoom Publishers, 2004 - Antiques & Collectibles - 336 pages
This book is the most complete and accurate guide of The Boyds Collection Ltd. in the world. A must have for the serious collector! The Boyds Collection Ltd.? began as an antiques shop in the home of G.M. Lowenthal and his partner (now wife), Justina Unger. Their love of antiques outweighed their ability to purchase many of the rare items, so the team shifted its focus. Instead of the "true antiques," G.M. and Tina began to seek out and sell "Antique Reproductions," with the look and feel of true antiques at more affordable prices. This retail venture proved to be so successful that by 1982 they began to wholesale some of these top-selling antique reproductions to other stores. The wholesale part of The Boyds Collection began to flourish and G.M. added a new line when he found a group of 100% Merino Wool Bears from China. In 1984 G.M. designed a 12" fully jointed wool bear and named it after his latest "joint venture" with Tina...their newborn son, Matthew. This becoming a beloved part of The Boyds Collection known far and wide as ?Boyds Bears?. Also in 1984, G.M. turned to resin sculpting to produce "The Gnomes Homes," extremely detailed miniature houses based on American architecture and his own fertile imagination. In 1993, Boyds released its first series of resin figurines, The Bearstone Collection?, and followed that up with Folkstones?, DollstonesTM, and host of other wacky resin characters, villages, dolls, pottery, treasure boxes, and nifty home d?cor.
