Almost without warning, it is that time of the year when we start embellishing our houses with our favourite Christmas-themed accessories. Ino Schaller papiermâché manufacture specialises in decorative figurines for the festive seasons and may be the answer to all ‘deco-holics’ and collectors out there who cannot wait to decorate their homes with the proper seasonal accessories. Based in Neustadt near Coburg, Ino Schaller is a long-established family business that was founded in 1894 by Carl Schaller, the great-grandfather of current owner Thomas Schaller, who runs the business in the fourth generation. “Contrary to our competitors’ products, our figurines are entirely ‘Made in Germany’ and thus a guarantor for the highest level of craftsmanship,” stresses Schaller. “All of our products are hand-cast and painted by highly qualified artists.”
