GRAUPNER+HOBBY

Hobby-Art / at home craft applies to the thousands of boys and girls and sometimes their parents, too, who produced their Wall Figures using templates. Especially in the 1950ies to the 1970ies were very successful for Graubele / Graupner, the main producer of fretwork templates. Graubele and Graupner are the same producers, they just changed their name around 1960. Another very successful producer was Pebaro.

HERE YOU WILL FIND AMONG OTHERS: Graupner/Graubele, Pebaro, Dullien, Hobby and Vobach.
