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. Paper mache traditions go back to the middle of the 19th century. The formula is a careful combination of kaolin, chalk, paper fibers, organic paste and clay. Copper wire reinforcement is also used for parts of the figure design.
All figures are beautifully and carefully nestled in a custom wooden box.
