Christian Hacker factory was founded in Nuremberg in 1835 and, over the
years, made varieties of wooden toys such as: stables, guard houses,
dollhouses, rooms, kitchens, shops, warehouses, castles, cars, trains
and many others. The toys were very high quality and very expensive.
The company twice won medals in Paris at the Great Exhibition. Often
their toys are marked with the Hacker label which was stamped or glued
on the toy. The company closed in 1927 after the economy went down in
Germany during the 1920s.
