Table of Contents

If you thought that Enesco began with Precious Moments, 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, Dearie is Weary, Golden Girls, and Winkin' Kitten are here, along with contemporary favorites like Country Cousins, Human Beans, Cherished Teddies, Coral Kingdom, and of course, Precious Moments. 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.
