Gelatine Klapplaternen

Recommended Posts

Nice little early nineteen thirties NSDAP lantern.

These where promotional items you could buy to raise funds for the NSDAP.

The panels are made of celluloid and unfortunately they have shrunk and have become very brittle with age.

All the purple colour ones need replacing, as they don't fit properly now.

The panels have a certain pattern on them, and as you can see they are in a very poor state.

Hopefully, I can find a similar pattern and may be some how get that on some plastic card?

Inside there is a small attachment to hold a candle?

Did it come with the catalogue?

It must be a very rare find and regarding restoration, I agree with Rich.

No, the catalogue picture is just to show how it was advertised.

Regarding a restoration, the brittle panels are falling apart, once there gone, there gone.

So, by trying to find a similar pattern to the original ones, I can at least preserve the original ones from further damage in the long term.

I will only replace them IF a suitable type can be found.

Mate, they're just opinions from afar. You have it in hand and I'm sure you'll do whatever is best.
