Licensed replica: Ladislav Sutnar: Toy Rhinoceros

Czechoslovakia, 1930, manufacturer: Modernist,



The handmade and painted toy replicas - elephant, rhinoceros, walrus, lion and camel - ideally represent Sutnar's concept of the modern toy. The main idea combines the principles of new pedagogical practices, abstract art and the originally intended cheap industrial production. The body is made of solid beech wood, the other parts of soft solid wood. Reproduction of the originals stored in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.


Ladislav Sutnar (1897-1976)

His work spans all areas of modern lifestyle. He is one of the main figures of Czech interwar modernism. He significantly influenced the development of applied design also in America, where he lived and worked from 1939.
