Fascinating Tinplate

A Toy Collection

The catalogue »Fascinating Tinplate« presents one of the most beautiful and most extensive private collections of tin plate toys in Germany for the first time to the public. This selection focuses specifically on rare and extremely high quality early tin plate toys from the late 19th and early 20th century. Historical railways, cars, steamships, zeppelins and aeroplanes display the pride of an era that looked with enthusiasm towards to the technical advances of the future and creates a living panorama of daily life and technology at the time of the Wilhelminian Empire and the Weimar Republic. Carefully selected exhibits from every variety of early tin plate toys provide a fascinating insight into this collector’s world.
