Daniel, John A.
Baranger. Window Displays in Motion. Dramatizing the Jewel.

Santa Fe Zon International Publishing Company: 2001.

Beginning in 1937, the Baranger Studios of South Pasedena began specializing in elaborate, miniature mechanical "stage displays" for use by jewelers in their shop windows to showcase fine jewelry and watches. Over the next 20 years the company created 167 different displays, 30 of each design. In 1978 the company archives were purchased by Burton A. Burton, who hired John Daniel (magician, collector, and antique toy restorer) to organize the collection, and restore a complete example of every model made by Baranger. The results are showcased in this book, not only the first comprehensive study of the Baranger display models, but a complete record of all their creations.

Hardcover. 9"x12", 127 pages, color illustrations, dust jacket. Light wear. Gift inscription.
