Paper Regiments. Strasbourg'sToy Soldiers

 Return

Description :

With its rich hoard of 60,000 figurines, Strasbourg City's History Museum has the largest public collection of "les petits soldats de Strasbourg", as they are called. Usually kept in the museum's reserves, these painted or printed cutout paper figures will be exhibited.

The tradition of these little cutout figures goes back to the paper nurseries and cardboard theatrical scenery of the 18th century. The techniques involved developed considerably in Strasbourg during the 19c, reaching a peak between 1871 and 1918. With the progress of colour printing, figurines from the Gustave Silbermann printing works became highly successful around the mid-19c. 

Rates : 6,50 euros
