Marolin Nativity Figures from Germany with an old world patina are made completely by hand with the special mixture of fine paper-mache originally created in the middle of the 19th century. Individual pieces are cast and hand assembled. Painters, all master craftsmen, give the figurines their unique character and vitality with a glowing antique patina worthy of heirloom nativity figures.
In 1900, Richard and Minna Mahr of Steinach, Germany founded the company for the creation of exquisite figurines. It was not long before his finally detailed paper-mache figures were known internationally. Richard designed all the molds along with Julies Weigelt.
Despite business being curtailed after the Berlin Wall was erected, in 1990 Mahr’s descendants were able to renew his legacy to the joy of collectors and connoisseurs worldwide. The 5th generation of the Mahr family continues to produce the fine items that are sought after around the world…figures that are still made from the finest molds of that genre for over 100 years. Nativity figures that we import at 12 cm or approximately 4.75” for a standing Joseph. All figures are beautifully and carefully boxed.
Please note: minimum order for nativity figures is $300 per manufacturing studio. More information is available under the FAQs.
