Lovely all original antique wooden and paper mache French Guignol puppet theater in rare to find small size 23" ( 59 cm ) total high , a perfect piece and unique eye catcher for your doll collection ! At the 19th. century was a Guignol one of the most popular toy puppet theater in France and Paris .... and at this times it is hard to find a good one in good condition and small size so that it would fit in a good doll collection !

The Guignol theater was also offered in the Etrennes catalog of " Grand Magazin de Louvre " or from " Au Bon Marche " and other Paris Depratment stores ! It´s all made of wooden and paper mache with beautifully gild painting of pretty carved wooden and papermache details and ornaments !

There is still a original card board curtain with lovely print and an card board plate , which has a lovely print hand colored scene , with this you have a nice background . The theater has a ovely litho print at front and it would be an eye catcher for displaying your antique French or German doll´s in a lovely doll scene with this Guignol ..... for me it was a lot of fun to create an doll scene and play with it :) !! Booth sides are covered with muslin in red color and movable to folding .

The condition is generally excellent from France around around 19th. century and in all original condition and finish !!

Total sizes : 23" ( 59 cm ) total high and 14" ( 36 cm ) weight at front , each side are 7" ( 18 cm )....secial rare to fin in this small size !!
