Made in West Germany ~ Circa 1950
Vintage Metallic Foil Papers
Old stock 'Rauschgoldengel Doppelfolie' foil paper that was made in Western Germany for the production of their famous Nuremberg Christmas angels, this double-sided metallic paper is bright and shiny with vivid colors.
Made from two pieces of colored metallic foil with a thin layer of paper in the center, when you shake the paper it actually "rustles" with a metallic sound. A wonderful paper for all manner of craft projects, it makes nice, even folds that hold a crisp edge.
About Nürnberg Rauschgoldengel
The traditional symbol of the world famous Christkindlesmarkt that takes place in the main square of Nuremberg each December, these metallic foil Christmas angels were first made during the 18th century. Originally produced from real "Rauschgold," which are paper-thin sheets of a pounded brass, these shining angels were popular tree toppers.
~ A Note About Our Foil Papers ~
We ship this foil paper flat; however, do be
aware that it will arrive with some dimples
and dings, which is inherent in this type of
foil paper, and is a sign of its authenticity.

View of the German Manufactory
In the early 1990's, we were given a
private tour of this historic factory by
Part of the tour included a
visit to the third floor attic, where all
vintage, no longer in use original
materials and supplies were stored.
The owner offered us the remaining
inventory of the old stock metallic
foil paper they had used to produce
"Nürnberger Rauschgoldengel" for
the German Christmas market from
the 1930's to the early 1950's.
Now more than sixty years old, we
are delighted to share these rare,
made in Western Germany metallic
foil papers with our crafter friends.
