Papermach√©-animals mounted on movable wooden boards belonged to the most popular toys until the middle of the 20th century. Just like here before no artificial materials are used the turned wooden wheels are mounted with special round head nails the hemp twine used for pulling comes from one of the last Thuringian roperies and the strap is fixed with an original Marolin-seal from the year 1917.
Founded in 1900, Richard Mahr of Steinach, Germany created the finely detailed papier-mâché figurines that have since become internationally known and collected. Marolin figurines are hand composed using a combination of kaolin, chalk, paper fibers, organic paste, and clay before being hand poured and painted. These figurines, not unlike Vaillancourt’s Chalkware, are known for their artistic quality and detail.
