Traditional Papier-mâché Large Easter Hare with Basket Candy Box


Ready to bring gifts of chocolate and easter eggs to all around, this Easter hare figurine is the centre piece of any Easter decoration display. You wouldn't be wrong to wonder how this figure is made of Papier-mâché given its solid ceramic like finish and soft smooth painting. The traditional making of these decorations is all in the details, from the tiny glass bead eyes to the rabbit's signature woven basket.

In fact, these Easter rabbits are produced by hand in the Eastern part of Germany where for over 100 years the toy industry flourished, supplying the world with objects for the amusement and joy of children. Today unfortunately, only a few studios and their homeworkers continue to produce such items but their charm still operates  thanks to their characterful faces, nostalgic appearance and old-fashioned symbolism. It's a slice of an older and simpler time, and to buy one is to ensure the studios continue making for the next generation.
