Little Paris, a new exhibition unit is currently being built in our museum branch – Poststrafle 15 – with fantastic French toys from the turn of the century.
The focus is on mechanical tin figures by Fernand Martin.
All objects come from Arthur Verdoorn’s large collection and were donated to the Spiel Foundation.
The toy museum with probably the largest museum collection of ” Fernand Martin-George Flersheim and Victor Bonnet ” toys in the world.
The following text is written by Mathias Ernst from the toy museum in Soltau and has been translated from German in Englisch.
Toys by the famous French tin toy inventor and manufacturer Fernand Martin are the focus of our “Petit Paris” exhibition department. We owe this wonderful collection to Arthur Verdoorn and his friend Lourens Bas.
