Trademark for Spear's Games

Just thought I would post some of the
trademarks that were registered by
Spear's Games.
Upon reading some books regarding
"Knitting Nancy" and the date
it was released/available, I have
come across errors.
You cannot always rely entirely
on the author's knowledge and I know
how hard it is to get the correct
information concerning any spool knitter.

These trademarks (and more) are from
"Games We Play" A History of J.W. Spear & Sons
by Helmut Schwarz and Marion Faber

Above was first used in 1923, registered trademark
in 1924, discontinued in 1982

Above is the trademark for German games,
1967 - 1979

Above is the trademark since 1983

If you are lucky to have the boxes with their "Knitting
Nancies", then these should give you a better
time line. Now if we can work out exactly
when each new "Knitting Nancy" was
actually released then that would
complete the picture!

If you would like to purchase the book
"Games We Play" go here
for the website.
