Golden Berchtesgadener Wedding Schachtel Shaker Style Wood Box
This heirloom quality piece is an adaptation of a hand painted schachtel (box) that is a part of the Berchtesgadener Museum's collection. Metallic gold stroke work stands out against the traditional earthy brown background. As is typical in the Berchtesgadener style of Bauernmalerei*, dots, comma strokes, and swirls accent this stylized floral motif.
This shaker style box is 15 inches in diameter and 7 inches high--a perfect size for storing a hat, wedding memorabilia, or for use as a sewing/mending box. Handcrafted by Snaggy Hollow Craftsmen in Saluda, NC from Blue Ridge Mountain grown poplar trees, this box is light weight yet sturdy and perfectly compliments the airy design. The interior has a medium dark brown stain finish.

*Bauernmalerei (pronounced bow-urn-maler-rye) is a style of decorative European folk painting that is associated with the handiwork of rural peasants residing primarily in Germany, Austria and Switzerland who used the stylized stroke work to embellish functional household items. Examples of Bauernmalerei, which is often referred to as Bavarian Folk Art, can be seen on everything from wooden thimbles to tin boxes, glassware, pottery, clothing, and large pieces of furniture.

When discussing custom work, I prefer to collaborate with my customers by phone, and then confirm the details through an email before proceeding. You'll have the opportunity to approve the design before I start and I'll post pictures of the finished piece before you purchase. I don't normally require a deposit for small projects that have a universal appeal. However depending on the size, level of personalization, and intricacy of a piece, I may ask for a deposit.
