It must have been an extraordinary experience for the people when they saw the first time a Zeppelin airship hovering high above their heads. In our museum still exists a photo of 1927 that shows such an airship over Steinach. Perhaps this event inspired the designer to create this beautiful ornament.The place of origin of the glass ornaments is the area around Lauscha in Thuringia. In the beginning it was just a substitute for real fruit which a poor glass-blower could not afford. With time the diversity of glass ornaments for Christmas trees grew. Their popularity grew and they became a real bestseller. This hand made item comes to you safely packed and together with an MAROLIN certificate of authenticity.
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.
