In earlier times Easter hares in this size were to be seen in the windows of confectionery shops. Only well-heeled buyers acquired the pieces – usually already filled – for their children. Today these Marolin® Easter hares are among the most popular Easter decorations because of their expressive shape. Manually inserted glass eyes support the natural appearance of the rabbit. By twisting and removing the head you get to the inside of the hare. After filling just put the head back on.
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.
