Lemanos – Lehmann

Company that follows the tradition started by Lehmann and continues to dedicate itself to the assembly, marketing, import and export of toys and dolls.

From the 1940s, after the Civil War, it began to manufacture indigenous rag toys and dolls, stuffed with sawdust or straw, with clay or cellulodyne masks, wool or mahoir hair and carefully created and made costumes.

The Celluloid

In the last quarter of the 19th century, celluloid began to compete with traditional materials used in doll making, such as biscuit, wood, paper, and cloth.

Because it was a versatile substance, made from pyroxylin (cellulose nitrates) and camphor, it was an inexpensive material and easy to produce.

It was mostly used extensively for doll making, as well as many household items, until the mid-1950s same Celluloid Agustí Parra nº28 Doll, when it was replaced by other plastics. Bobbin Cushion Doll

 

Celluloid was first developed and used for Hyatt Brothers dolls in New Jersey in the late 1860s. His company registered the name “celluloid” in 1869. Although the product was patented, the word celluloid is used to Often to describe all types of pyroxylin mixtures, regardless of manufacturer.

The manufacturing process of the celluloid dolls in the first place is to place the celluloid substance in its solid state in a two-piece metal mold. The second step was to introduce steam or hot air into the mold under pressure, this softened the celluloid adapting to the shape of the mold until the two halves were joined.

When it cools, it is removed from the mold and the doll is decorated. Bobbin Cushion Doll
