Antique Toy Paper Scenery circa 1896-1906 GARDEN & PARK Vintage Imagerie Pellerin d'Epinal Paper Grand Theatre Nouveau Imagerie D'Epinal – No 1680 JARDIN ET PARC Changements de décors à la minute. This is an original pochoir lithograph. Not a reproduction. PELLERIN & Cie, IMP.-EDIT. in 1796, Jean Charles Pellerin had set up the “Imagerie d'Epinal” & popularised printed images of everyday scenes. However, Pellerin's sheets, like the rest of his products, were intended to be cut out & glued on to cardstock. The theatre collections consist of coloured lithographed sheets of French theatrical stage settings. New publishers emerged in Epinal in the 19th century, including Charles Pinot & his “Nouvelle Imagerie d'Epinal.” in 1860 he designed the first French toy theatre proscenium, based on the Paris Opera Theatre, although he never published it. The emergence of this new company resulted in a veritable war in the production of images, a battle that was eventually won by the very famous “Imagerie Pellerin d'Epinal”. This publishing house ended up becoming the leading French firm in the field & in 1888 it bought out all of Pinot's stock. in 1896, with the new century closing in & the Paris “Exposition Universelle” just around the corner, Pellerin published Pinot's theatre design under the name “Grand Théâtre Nouveau” & he produced a series of accompanying sceneries that were the cause of admiration due to the use of gold in the sumptuous decorations. The success of this magnificent theatre extended until 1906, & up to 26 different backdrops & riggings were produced, although Pellerin never printed texts to complete his repertoire.
