The Golden Glow of Christmas Past

A bewitching set of 5 paper mache figurines from Marolin. RETIRED. $248
The witch is approximately 13 1/2" tall.

These nostalgic paper mache figuerines are from Marolin, the Richard Mahr company, which was founded in the 1900 by Richard Mahr in his parents' home in the town of Steinach, Thuringia. Like many family craft businesses then and now, the house was both a residence and a workshop. His Marolin paper mache figures became known worldwide until World War II stopped the production.

The family lost control of the business to the East German government from 1949 to 1990. In the 1970s, the original family paper mache recipe was lost. By chance, workers found the formula written on a cellar door in 1990.

Today, Richard Mahr's granddaughter, Evelyn Forkel, and her son Christopher operate the family company, molding classic Germany paper mache figures, many of them in her grandfather's molds from more than 100 years ago.
