My Adaptation on a Vintage J.F. Schreiber Rococo Toy Theater

Hey All - I knows it's been a few months since my last post...
 but today I have another vintage toy theater post for you to enjoy.

I've had this digital adaptation on the back burner for a while and finally
put the finishing touches on it over the weekend.

This time round it's a German Paper Theater by J.F. Schreiber of Esslingen
I really like the fancy elements on theaters like this one.
This Rococo/Late Baroque style Schreiber was listed as No. 400 a&b and is from around 1894.

 This first image is a digital composition I did using various elements included in this post.
The theater surround or "Proscenium" is my digital adaptation on an original unassembled sheet.

A vintage J.F. Schreiber Toy Theater Paper Sheet - Rococo Proscenium "No.400 a&b" c1894
 An original vintage sheet came as seen above and had to be cut and assembled to form the 
Theater's Proscenium - that's the fancy outer portion of the stage that frames the performance.

Many of these toy theater Proscenuim sheets came in "to be assembled" format like shown here.
I'm guessing this was to help reduce the cost of these sheets and made them easier to store since some of the original assembled sizes were of a fair size and printed assembled on one sheet would have made them rather large.

This post is about the Schreiber Rococo No. 400a&b but I wanted to show that sometimes the numbering system these printers used could get a bit confusing when "hunting" or collecting.
  Schrieber produced another Proscenuim sheet with a similar number - see below

J.F. Schreiber's Paper theater sheet No. 400c
 the photo is from an eBay auction I didn't win, but did try strongly for.
Schreiber also made a Paper Theater Sheet No.400c, pictured above - not to be confused with the Rococo No.400 a&b.  Even though both theater sheets carry a similar number and both are striking, they are nothing alike.  I'd love to one day find out why they were numbered so similarly, so if anyone out there knows - please drop me a line or leave a comment - grins.

 A bit about J.F. Schreiber
Jakob Schreiber (1809-1868) was the founder of the J.F. Schreiber publishing company.
They were one of the top printers of Paper Theater sheets due to having detailed, quality products.
There were a number of Paper theater sheet printers across Europe in the 1800's and very early
1900's of which the German sheets from J.F. Schreiber were among some of the best available.
Schreiber produced a nice selection of proscenium, curtains, scenery sheets and
over 80 different character sheets; many of which reference children stories. 
Most of these sheets can be identified by the JFS# printed on the sheets

Vintage Schreiber sheets can be purchased on the Internet via a variety of international auction houses but many of then sell for big money; however it's still possible to pick up some of these rare treasures for reasonable prices if you keep hunting.  If antique prints and prices are not your thing there are a few companies that have reprints available for the modern enthusiast. To view a nice selection or Schreiber reprints click HERE. Several vintage JFS sheets can be seen and downloaded from the Dutch website "Memory of the Netherlands".  There is also a nice selection of "Papieren Theaters" on the site; however there is little information listed about each one. If you see JFS marked on a sheet then it's a Schreiber. 

A vintage J.F. Schreiber Toy Theater Paper Sheet - Rococo Proscenium "No.400 a&b" c1894

The Schreiber No.400 a&b sheet I was working with had some issues; which I did my best to correct, so I had a good starting point while doing the digital assembly.  An interesting item I discovered while working with this theater image is that the "2 upper bridge pieces" do not really line up well "color wise" when assembled.  I even examined a number of vintage assembled theaters of the Schreiber Rococo online and noticed several of them do not line up seamlessly either.  I was able to repair this color glitch on the assembled digital version I created and was quite please with the final result - I hope you agree.

Please note: If you try and use the above sheet to assemble a theater
the finished result is a bit "off" aesthetically. 

Here is an example of a vintage assembled Rococo Theater showing the issue described above.
Vintage Assembled Schreiber Rococo Theater found at
If you take a close look along the top bar where the cherubs are you will see a definite division where the two parts of the strip just don't join well and the pattern's flow is broken.  I found that aspect of the original to be too distracting and made corrections to my "assembled" version to correct it.

The next item I needed to consider while adapting my version, was what to do about a base.
The original sheet does not have one so again a did a bit more research and found a variety of ways the original sheet was assembled in past years.  Some had a base drawer as seen in the above photo. Others had a plain pedestal wood base and so forth.  I even found an example of this theater at an auction site where the entire theater was made narrower (maybe to avoid the odd top strip or simply because the other images that person had required a narrower theater)???

Here is a selection of several slightly different assembled versions of this theater
 I've seen posted on a variety of web auction sites over the years.
Several different looks from the same paper theater sheet - Schreiber 400 a&b
 The top two examples seem to include the entire theater sheet.  The top left appears as a slightly wider theater since the sides were assembled farther apart from the upper sections.
The theater on the top right was assembled as the instruction diagram in the sheet showed.

The bottom two examples have been made into narrower theaters where the 2-part cherub strip was shortened so that all the side edges form a straight line; rather than the arched section being slightly shorter. The bottom left version shows a built up stage area or footer; and the one on the bottom right has a built up pedestal which is made up of a duplicate cherub strip.

I liked the original size of the theater and the duplicated cherub strip on the bottom from the last theater so that is the configuration I chose to go with for my digital version.
My digital version of the Schreiber 400a&b Rococo Proscenium
The above image is the version I came up with and since I love curtains I added in a Schreiber curtain for some extra fun.  I consider this an all in one adaptation that can still be modified later on should I want a different look. If you are working with a printout of this version you can cut it up as needed to slightly alter the look.  The curtain can be cut out, the base can be removed; and if you remove the base, then the sides can be cut away and slid farther over to make a slightly wider theater.

That's one of the great things about working with paper theaters that have "sections"; 
many times they allow you to be flexible in how you choose to assemble the theater.

The curtain I used for this theater is a from another unassembled Schreiber sheet
J.F. Schreiber Paper Theater Sheet with and unassembled theater curtain and some foliage
The original version of this sheet I was working from was damaged and discolored. 
I've digitally restored it to reflect what an undamaged vintage sheet should look like.  
(I did not want an antique look to my finished theater, so for my end result
 the curtain has been digitally enhanced even more than shown here.)

I also created a second version of the theater with a blue curtain, for some extra fun.
My same digitally altered theater but with a blue curtain instead of red.
Red theater curtains seem to be the most popular for theaters be they real or toy; but they came in other colors and I thought it would be fun to have a ready to go alternate color for mine as well.
I like the way this periwinkle blue curtain worked with the proscenium so that's what I went with.

I also decided to add in some scenery sheets so this would be a set and not just a theater surround.
Depending on how you build the theater, you may need to size down the scenery
and character sheets for you own project.

Suez Canal 3 Part Scenery Sheets by J.F. Schreiber - digitally repaired and enhanced vintage sheets by EKDuncan 2013
 There are a variety of paper theater sheet configurations. Usually a Scene consists of a Background and some accessory sheets like side wings, props, footers, headers, and characters.
The above Suez Canal scene has 3 sheets that set the stage, giving nice dimension to the final setting.

Exterior & Interior Scenery Sheets by J.F. Schreiber - digitally repaired and enhanced vintage sheets by EKDuncan 2013
Schreiber made a variety of scenery sheets, above are examples of exterior and interior sheets.
I've included a photo of what the interior room looks like once its put together, you can see it a little further down in the post.

It's nice to have the theater and scenery, but what's a play without its players.
Two different JFS Character Sheets in two different sizes
Sheet no.504 Characters for "Die Räuber" - The Robbers
Sheet no.510 Characters for "Elsa Die Standhaft Madg" - Elsa the Steadfast Maid 

I'm not sure what characters should go with the scenery sheets I have on this post, 
but I thought these characters might work with them. 
It's also fun to use fashion plate images from the time period as characters as another option. 
The idea is just to have fun.

For those who want to know what an assembled toy theater scene should look like...
An example of how the interior room looks when it's set in place - image from Spielzeugmuseum Nürnberg
Toy theaters and dioramas can be built in any dimension you choose. Generally a toy theater has quite a bit of depth to it so that when the background is placed to the far back and the individual side wing panels are staggered, as each sequential set is placed forward, you get a great illusion from these flat elements.  You have to remember you are dressing a stage just like in live theater, just on a smaller scale.

Example of a modified Schreiber 400 a&b with scenery panels - via from - item 9093812
The above theater shows a narrower version of the theater along with a good number 
of Schreiber scenery pieces. There is even a scene set up within.

While the J.F.S no400 a&b is just one of many beautiful paper theaters by the German publisher  J.F. Schreiber; there were several other German Toy Theater Paper Sheets makers from the same period.

As with printers in various countries who produced toy theater sheets, there were a variety of qualities available, to suite nearly any budget. The higher quality images were printed on heavier, high grade paper. Those images were sharp and beautifully detailed and the coloring was exceptional.  The budget quality sheets were printed on thinner, low grade paper, very much like newsprint.  Depending on the printer the images range from very detailed to less refined. Usually the coloring process was of a much lower standard than what was being produced by the high end publishers; however there were some lovely sheets available even from the budget conscious print companies.

Here is a list of the German Paper Toy Theater printers I'm aware of and a examples from each:
(Many of the images shown below are from

J.C. Winckelmann -Berlin, Germany (high quality images)

I'm in the process of working on a beautiful Schmidt & Röhmer theater similar to the 
Thalia (seen above) but I still have a ways to go before I'll be ready to post it.

If you want a general idea of what the theater looks like I've got a photo of one version of it pinned to my Toy Theater Pinterest board at

Thanks for joining me on my Toy Theater Adventure and

New Look for a Vintage Paluzie Paper Theater

As Promised I've created a few new looks on anther vintage Paluzie Toy Theater.

Preview - New Looks for a vintage Paluzie Toy Theater
When I originally posted about this vintage Paluzie Toy Theater from Spain, I made mention that I personally did not like the top portion of the theater and that my preference was to remove it and use just the lower box portion of the theater.  Well, that caused me to try an find an alternate way of revising the look of the theater so I would keep it in tact. I like the final revised look and hope you do too. - grins

The original post showing the Paluzie Nº 1028 Theater can be seen -HERE
I hope you get the chance to check out that post which contains several Paluzie Theaters.

Original modifications made to the theater

Originally I did some clean up to the vintage sheet and digitally assembled it to create the full theater.  I did not like the "topper" so I tried to add in more shadows and brightened up the figures and though this improved the image slightly, I still was not thrilled with the final look.

Well, on that post I did not want to stray too far from the charm of the original Spanish theater and left it at that.  But it continued to bug me and I decided to take a new stab at it - this time I made several modifications to the original and tried a variety of backgrounds till I decided on my final look.

I decided the background behind the figures and the "flatness" of them was my main issue. So step one was to concentrate on statues, remove the upper background and find one that worked better.

New Altered Attempt - better but not there yet
Though I liked this look better, it still was not what I wanted; so at this stage of the game I decided to remove all the background from the entire theater and go for something more radical.

New Version - Recolored and New Background
I recolored a majority of the theater which helped to give more dimension to the statues and other items. Then with the background removed I had the opportunity to add in more drop shadows and put in a unique background of my own, using a variety of layers and textures till I achieved this new look.

Once I got to my final background choice I wanted it in a few color options and choose to add in a drop curtain for each; so here are the three I came up with.

Note - The theater is based on a vintage Paluzie, but the additional drop curtain has been altered from a 1918 image published by Illustreret Familie Journal which was posted on Flickr - HERE

New Version - Teal Theater - Green Curtain

New Version - Green Theater - Lilac Curtain

New Version - Gold Theater - Blue Curtain

I really like the way the new updated theater came out and think I might stand a better chance of keeping this theater in tack than I did before... but I still think I like it best without.

It's probably all those lovely flowers, I seem to want them to be the focal point 
without fighting for attention with the upper figures. 

Oh well, different strokes for different folks.  I'm sure many of you would prefer the original untouched version to the altered one but at least there are options to choose from and variety is the spice of life so you now have your pick.

Till Next Time...

Fairy Tale Paper Theater in Various Colors

My Fanciful Muse was not quite ready to move on from the Paluzie theaters I've been posing about, so I've been having a bit of fun creating colorized versions of these vintage treasures.

Today I have a fun color selections on what I've dubbed the "Fairy Tale Theater"
because it has that bejeweled, story book, kingdom look I associate with fairy tales.
These little gems are based on a vintage image from Spain;
 which can be seen on the original post - HERE

The original image was intended to be an inner curtain to work with other Paluzie toy theaters; however I really liked the way this image took on it's own identity as an independent theater, by adding a base.  And as much as I liked the original "red" version, I decided to created a variety of colors for added fun.  So here is what My Muse came up with.

Quick View of all the Colors

Now this fun little theater has 9 looks from the updated but original Red 
to a most elegant Black and gold version.

Fairy Tale Theater - Red

Fairy Tale Theater - Black

Fairy Tale Theater - Emerald

Fairy Tale Theater - Plum

Fairy Tale Theater - Navy

Fairy Tale Theater - Purple

Fairy Tale Theater - Teal

Fairy Tale Theater - Green

Fairy Tale Theater - Raspberry

This series of Fairy Tale theaters was created from a vintage toy theater paper sheet created c1900 by Paluzie, Barcelona. More can be seen about it and some scenery to work with theaters shown here can also be found on that same post. 
Another altered Paluzie toy theater can be found at post. 
 Spanish Paper Theater Images Part 2 - Paluzie, Barcelona
I modified the Spanish Paluzie theater from "part 2" so it too has 
a few variations and it can be seen - HERE

There's still more to come as I continue my Toy Theater Quest so,

Spanish Paper Theater Images Part 2 - Paluzie, Barcelona

Hello once again from My Fanciful Muse to Yours.

Today in Part 2 of Spanish Paper Theaters, I have another Paluzie Theater to share 
and then at the end of the post there are a few more mini Paluzie theaters for some added fun.
If you want to catch up the previous post (Paluzie Part 1) can be seen - HERE

This is part of the Paluzie Theater Nº 1028 I've altered and with a fun vintage paper curtain I've also altered.
This Paluzie Theater (Nº 1028) originally has a "topper" on it but I personally like the theater without it and wanted to show it displayed in this fashion to show that it can easily be removed to give the theater a other look.  If you've been following my Toy Theater Posts, the curtain shown here probably looks familiar... and that would be correct.  I used a red and green version of it on the Cherub Theater Part 1 post  - HERE and I'll be including it again today with this theater.

I'm still trying to discover who made or published this particular curtain and if I do I'll update the post to show that information.  If any viewer knows who made this curtain or to what toy theater it belongs... I'd love to know, so drop me comment or email. Thanks in advance.

This Paluzie, Barcelona theater started off as an uncut paper sheet from Spain.  Though nice in it's original state I did some digital clean up and assembly and created two slightly different color versions of it for this post.
Preview Sheet for the Paluzie Nº 1028 Theater
The above sheet shows the progress from the original sheet (the first image at the very top) and the various new looks the theater can when using the project print sheets that will be included below.

The original theater sheet had some "extras" at the lower portion of the stage I did not like and so for my rendition of the theater those have been eliminated.  The next change thought subtle was some clean up and highlighting of the figures at the top of the theater.
Changes made to the upper decorative portion of the proscenium
The digital alterations I made to the proscenium and especially the topper can best be shown with the above image.  The changes are subtle but I think they make a world of difference in allowing the image to "pop" and give it a bit more dimension than it originally had.
The colors have been enhanced, more shadows were put in behind the figures and I backed the finished image with black for added definition.

Below are two printable theater play sheets; featuring my rendition of the Paluzie, Barcelona Nº 1028 Theater.  Each is a slightly different color versions of the theater with a few curtain options I came up with.  I call the one closest to the original "Sunset" and the pinker one "Melon".

Set #1 - Sunset Color Version
I call this set "Sunset" due to the stronger theme of reds and golds

The super fancy curtain is unidentified but the other curtain sets on the pages have been altered 
from a set originally produced in 1924 by the Danish Publication Illustreret Familie-Jounal. 
It can be seen HERE and other colorized versions of it can be seen - HERE.

They go so well with a variety of model theaters that I tend to alter and recycle them as needed.

Set 2 - Melon Color Version
I call this set "Melon" due to shades that remind me of watermelon and cantaloupe
You can get a totally different look on the theater by removing the upper portion, 
with the figures; as I did with the first image shown on today's post.

Also, the "green" and  "yellow" curtains from each set could easily be used with the 
opposite theater coloration scheme if you wanted to mix things up even more.

Add in some backgrounds and interesting character figures and you can build any number of compositions that are unique.  These can be used to build cards, dioramas or actual working mini theaters, depending on the amount of time you want to invest in your build.

To get you started I've created a sheet with a few vintage Paluzie backgrounds 
and matching side wings pieces that can be used with these theater sheets.
Two background and side wing sets
 The side wing panels are used to create illusion and depth within a toy theater, 
just as they would be used on a real stage. 

Below I've included a photo I found on the web showing the Paluzie theater and in it you can see some side wings plated in between the front of the theater and the back background.
Paluzie Toy Theater - From The Bruce Museum's exhibit "A Child's View"
and is part of an interesting article Victoriana Magazine did on Toy Theaters at the Bruce Museum.
There is also a "jeweled" inner curtain in the image shown above.  In the previous post 
I created a Toy Theater image out of  Paluzie, Barcelona sheet Nº520; 
which is where the inner curtain came from. 

For this post I have included the curtain as intended.
Red Curtain for the "Sunset" Theater - Raspberry Curtain for the "Melon" Theater
Since I have two different color versions of the theater I wanted to provide and 
inner curtain that would work with each one, so here they are.


A bit about Paluzie, Barcelona

Casa Paluzie  (1865-1940) was a Spanish based publishing house. They specialized in cut-sheet, paper theater and paper toys as well as: popular prints, educational books, maps, instructional toys, and a variety of other printed paper products.  The company was started in 1844 by Esteve Paluzie (1804-1873); A teacher and publishing editor and by the mid 1860's he was fully devoted to his publishing enterprise.
The establishment of Don Esteban Paluzie published it's first know catalog in 1867 and continued till 1940.
This was around the time of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), which was taking place as most of Europe was dealing with the beginnings of  WWII.  My Mother was a young girl growing up in Spain during this difficult time. She and several of my aunts and uncles have told me stories of the hardships that took it's toll all over the country due to Spain's internal conflict between The National Republic and rebel Nationalists led by Franco (Franco won by the way, for those of you who are unfamiliar with Spain's more current history.)  
I have to assume that the toll of the war probably had a large financial impact on the business and may have been a major cause to the end of Casa Paluzie in 1940.


Paluzie paper sheets are some of the rarer ones to come across, especially in the USA; 
however they do appear from time to time on Internet auction sites.

These are what a few of the other Paluzie, Barcelona Toy Paper Theaters look like.
(note - I made some updates to several items below on 11-14-2013)

I digitally "cleaned up" the above 1059 Paluzie from a theater sheet I found on the Internet
at "" - HERE

The original version of the above Teatro De Sombras
is from the Collection of - Francesc d' A. López Sala.  
Francesc has several blogs showing wonderful images of vintage paper toys.  
The blogs are in Spanish but the images need no translation; 
so I hope you check them out - HERE and HERE

He was also generous enough to share with us the second sheet that works with the above theater.
By cutting out the below circles and installing as shown via the diagram you will get 
a "moving shadow puppet show".
 Thanks Francesc!!!


The next group of theaters came as sheets that needed to be assembled to complete the Toy Theaters.
Most of these sheets I was fortunate enough to purchase from European online sellers. 
They take a bit longer to arrive in the mail and you pay a lot for shipping to get them stateside; but I think it's worth the extra time and expense in the end when you get to see one of these beauties up close and personal.

"Embocadura de Teatro - Teatro Moderno Nº 1090 bis"
is shown above in both it's assembled version as well as the uncut sheet. 
The main portion of the theater is in one piece and then the orchestra sections need to be 
assembled in front to build the complete sheet as intended.
This orchestra strip can be attached directly to the theater's front or it could be used to cover a front 
drawer that would hold additional paper sheets, characters and props used with a toy theater.
The builder could also opt not to use the orchestra at all and different base could be created 
for the theater or drawer cover if this section was not wanted or perchance is missing.

I've noticed that some Paluzie sheets have similar numbers for different images.
For example, farther down you will see another Paluzie sheet numbered 1090 but that theater is a smaller version of a Theater Español with accessories and not a Teatro Moderno like the above theater.  
It's interesting that the above theater is Nº 1090 bis... I've noticed the "bis" ending on a few of my Paluzie sheets but they seem to be for scenery or accessories that accompany a theater facade sheet.  This is the first Theater facade sheet I've had that carried a "bis" after the number.

I'm not sure why two different theaters would carry the same sheet number but I'm guessing that they were made in different years and as one theater 1090 was no longer being made a different one was?
I'm still searching an answer as to why "Embocadura de Teatro - Teatro Moderno Nº 1090 bis" has a bis ending next to the model number and will update the page if I ever find out - grins.
(Update 5/22/2023 - "bis" numbering update - One of my readers asked for an updated on the "bis" numbering of these sheets, so I wanted to add what I can best figure out, here on this original post.
It does indeed seem that the "bis" notates this sheet is not the original 1090 but "another" 1090.
These are Spanish printings but in Italian referencing Latin "bis" denotes Encore! or Again! and is used in musical scores to indicate a part to be repeated. Bis is used in France and Italy instead of encore.
Based on other Paluzie sheets using "bis" next to the number it seems to indicate "this is in addition to" the original # produced...  It could be that the "bis" sheet is in addition to, an updated version, an altered version or possibly in the case of Teatro Moderno 1090 a replacement version.  "Bis" signifies an encore but not to be confused with another by the same number.)


Teatro Español Nº 1060 (Decoraciones de Teatro - Fachada)
Is shown above in both the uncut sheet and a vintage assembled version.
The main theater is in one piece and then the orchestra sections need to be added in front.
This strip can be attached directly to the theater's front or it could be used to cover a front 
drawer that would hold additional paper sheets, characters and props used with a toy theater.

Occasionally you can discover variation in a theaters coloration. In the above example the vintage assembled theater has slightly different coloring than the vintage uncut sheet I own but this is one of the aspects that makes vintage paper toys so much fun.

And remember earlier, on the Theater 1090 bis I left a note that there were two different theaters numbered 1090, well here are two different Teatro Español theaters with the number 1060.
The above Teatro Español Nº 1060 is a Decoraciones de Teatro - Fachada Nº 1060 where as the below Teator Español Nº 1060  is listed as Fachada de Teatro Nº 1060;  and to make matters more confusing the below Fachada de Teator Nº 1060 theater came in a smaller size with accessories and was numbered Nº 1090 - go figure???

Paluzie 1060 was also made in a different size with a curtain on the same sheet and numbered 1090 - see next example

The colors on the above vintage Teatro Español 1060 sheet are slightly different from those seen in the below version of the smaller vintage assembled Teatro Español 1090. Here again I'm not sure if this is the case with all 1060 & 1090 Teatro Español's of this style or just these shown here.
Either way I find it fascinating in it's confusion.

This Teatro Español shows the theater and two uncut sheets.
The first uncut sheet Nº 1090 shows the theater and curtain and the 
second sheet Nº 1061 shows a larger curtain and stage props alone and was 
intended to be used with the larger Teatro Español Nº 1060 pictured above this example.

Just goes to show when collecting you need to pay attention to the numbering system and verify sizing when purchasing or you could be purchasing the wrong item for your needs.
The Curtain in the 1090 combination curtain/accessory sheet, is too small to work with the Fachada de Teatro Nº 1060.  You need to have the larger Nº 1061 curtain and accessory sheet for the larger theater sheets: Fachada de Teatro Nº 1060 as well as the Teatro Moderno Nº 1090 bis".


I hope you have enjoyed exploring vintage Toy Theaters from Paluzie, Barcelona with me.  
These are really near and dear to my heart; but they are not the only 
Paper Theaters that came from Spain. 

Seix Barral was known for it's Toy Theater series “Teatro de los Niños” and 
Hernando, Madrid has at least one Paper Theater and multiple scenery sheets that I'm aware of.
I might explore those with you at another time but for now My Muse seems to be 
heading off in another direction so we will have to put that on the back burner for a bit.

So many projects and not enough hours in the day to get it all done, such is the wonder of life.

Till Next Time...
