One of the first references to papier-mâché dolls is in Fournier’s “History of Children’s Games.” “The first dolls used a mixture of clay, paper and chalk called ‘carton-pierre’ (literally ‘stone cardboard’).”

In the area of ​​Germany this material was known as “cardboard-pâté” (cardboard paste or papier-mâché) where it was poured into the molds of the dolls.

It was assumed that this process was introduced to Sonnerberg from Paris, laid the foundations of large industry. Walking Doll Schoun and Hoffmeister
