German Paper Mache & Candy Containers
Carl Schaller started a company in his home to produce paper holiday articles, including paper mache candy containers, in 1894, in Neustadt-by-Coberg, in Bavaria, in west central Germany.
The Richard Mahr company, also know as Marolin, was founded in the 1900 by Richard Mahr in his parents' home in the town of Steinach, Thuringia.
Today, there are many candy container "reproductions," but nothing matches the integrity, quality and artistry of one made in an original mold, by one of the same families, in the same home workshops where the original family businesses began more than 100 years ago.
