Massilia Toy, une collection de jouets de MarseilleSold by Mucem Museum
DescriptionFor 20 years, Bruno Cirla and Christophe Feraud have been identifying and collecting toys produced in Marseille from the end of the 19th century to the late 1970s. A collection that reflects national production trends and reconstructs the network underlying local production.
As a witness to an era, the toy documents both the economic context and the social and cultural imprint governing its production.
Through a selection of emblematic pieces from the exhibition, the richly illustrated book takes a playful route that invites reminiscence. It brings together optical and mechanical toys and restores artisanal know-how and technical progress, in a case whose form reactivates the youthful enthusiasm of browsing through a toy catalogue.
