We were immediately taken with this unique piece: the incredible 3D details, the colour scheme, and the rich, exotic scene being depicted. All of these are classic characteristics of a German paper theatre backdrop. 

Paper theatres set the standard for German children's theatres in the 1880s in Europe. This particular theatre would have stood upright, and has slits in it to allow the paper character on sticks to move “on stage”. 

This particular piece was mounted on a lithograph by Brumby & Clarke by the previous owner, and is framed in an original antique wood & plaster frame as shown.

Stamped made in Germany.

Dimensions : 18.5" x 23.5"
