D'Epinal Guingnol Punch Paper toy theater
You see a hand made paper Imagerie D'Epinal theater Guignol paper punch theater set assembled. I have reduced the antique original, printed it on card stock paper and assembled it into this delightful image of the past. The original printed paper sheet by Pellerin, Imagerie D'Epinal was printed in France over a century ago. This reproduction recreates the charming colors and is faithful to the original intent of the paper sheet and that was to make a miniature model of a French Punch Theater set. This set if 6" tall and printed on all four sides, as well as a colorful back drop inside the stage. This set needless to say, took a long time to cut and assemble by hand. The original were made in the same manor.
