These oval boxes were popular in Germany and America from 1750 to 1850. They were made of wood
and then decorated by the "schachtelmaler" or box painter. The boxes were given as a wedding gift
or a love gift from the groom. Smaller items in the bride's trouseau such as linens, lace and ribbons were
stored in these boxes.
All of my Brides' Boxes are of a high quality, museum grade wood. You can have the traditional
saying done in either German or English. A brief history is on the bottom of each box.
You also can have the box personalized with the names of the couple and their wedding date on the bottom.
Quite a few of my customers have used the box at wedding receptions to collect the gift envelops.
