For your consideration is this 8 3/4" X 11" hardcover, 48 page, coffee-table style book. This is the only Collector Book that deals exclusively with the Rittgers figures.

Dorothy Hesner worked for Rittgers Novelties from 1941 until it closed around 1956. Her amazing memory for detail and willingness to give so much of her time has allowed me to accumulate much of the information that I can now share with other collectors.

After you read this book you will feel like you have just been given a tour of Rittgers" studio.

The book contains many black & white photos taken from inside the shop. There is a short bio of LL Rittgers along with more black & white photos provided by his relatives.

The book includes professional color photos of all known Rittgers figures produced. Many of the humorous sets are also professionally featured in "real life" backgrounds.

You will learn the history of Rittgers Novelties and how the figures were made and distributed. There is a section on Knock-Offs and a value page.
