Die-Cut Cardboard Party Lanterns
Made in Germany by Herold
Our paper lanterns were made by Friedrich
Herold GmbH of Chamerau, Germany back in
the early-to-mid 1990's. Established in 1910,
they produced a wide selection of decorative
cardboard cutouts and lanterns. Sadly, after
104 years in business, they closed down the
the factory in 2014. These collectible paper
lanterns are original salesman samples that
have been kept in storage at least 23 years.
Made from heavy, embossed and die-cut
black cardboard, each panel is backed with
a colorful, printed paper insert. Lanterns all
have thin wire hangers and a metal candle
holder with fold-up prongs in the base.
The Kastenlanternen, or Box Lanterns are
assembled in one piece: when you fold open
the lantern, a square top and base that are
attached on the inside will fall into place.
Klapplanternen, or Folding Lanterns come
pre-assembled: just pick up the lantern by
its handle and the piece will pop into shape.
die-cut cardboard Halloween Fun lantern
Light-up your lantern or enjoy as is!
These traditional German party lanterns
were made to be used with lighted candles, so they do come with metal candle holders
built into the base of each of the lanterns.
For safety reasons, we recommend that
you light up your lantern with an electric
bulb or use a battery-operated candle.
Please do note that one side of the
lanterns is shown in the photo above,
while the reverse is pictured below.
