Antique Chromolithograph German Die Cut Easter Rabbit Scrap


Add to Cart:

Please note that this is real, full size antique scrap, not a miniature.

20 years ago my grandfather gave me these exquisite chromolithograph die cut scrap pictures he'd kept in his cellar since the 1920's and 1930's.

My grandfather was a candy maker and bought these embossed scrap pictures to use inside panorama Easter eggs. He gave me the ones he still had left. He told me that after the war, these pictures became impossible to find because all of the factories had been bombed during WW II.

If you've never seen a panorama Easter Egg, it was an egg, made of sugar or chocolate that was hollow. A round hole was left in one end and covered with plastic or glass - if you looked inside the egg, you saw a beautiful scene that looked 3-D filled with pictures of flowers and children playing and all sorts of things!

The scrap pictures themselves are absolutely exquisite. This sheet is of Easter bunnies!

The detail in them is amazing. In the top row, there's a little boy rabbit with his dad (also a rabbit..hehehe) walking their little yellow chick ! Dad is carrying a woven basket of Easter eggs in one hand and has a HUGE red Easter egg tucked under the other arm! Looks like they just found those eggs in the woods behind them. There are all sorts of charming pictures - of a little Easter stand decorated with eggs hanging from the thatched roof, of a little girl bunny on a swing, mamma bunny giving a baby bunny a bath too!

There are 18 pictures in all - all completely different from each other too!

I believe Victorian women and children used to put these into their scrap albums. These are pretty enough to be framed if you're not an ephemera collector !

The sheet itself measures 9" wide by and 6 3/8" high. Each individual piece is about 2" high by 1 1/2" wide. The sheet is also marked with the initials EAS and has a number on it - #3133 and says: "Printed in Germany".
