Can someone tell me more about The Zoological Garden Empty
PostSubject: Can someone tell me more about The Zoological Garden   Can someone tell me more about The Zoological Garden EmptyThu Apr 23, 2015 6:38 pm

Hello, I recently bought this toy kit made in Germany in a lot of board games from the 1930s. There are no identifying marks that I could find. The animals appear to be two halves of pressed paper pulp that are painted. Each has a small thread loop on its back. They are very light and fragile but the entire box appears to never have been assembled.

There is one larger elephant in the box that is marked JAPAN and must be from a later era (celluloid?). Here is a link to the album:

Thanks! I drove 50 miles to pick it up knowing it was special, but I am always shocked when a Google search comes up empty. I guess not everything in on the Internet, yet. Wink

Yes, the box and instructions say made in Germany. I've been Googling more and the closest thing I can find so far is "dresden paper animal ornaments"

Welcome here, what a incredible catch. I saw in the Munich toy museum celluloid figurines. I think they was called as " Erzgebirge".  Yvette lives in Munich and can sayy if i am right:).  But i dont know if Erzgebirge mean a brand because it is a area not far from my hometown to. Today the Erzgebirge is famous for wooden, mostly christmas, figurines (but also animals)
