In the 18th Century, boxes made of ‘wood shavings,” usually oval in shape, were given as wedding presents or love gifts.  There were many centers for the painting of these boxes; but it is generally believed that most of them came from central or lower Germany, especially the Thuringian Forest area.  The artists became very skillful with these casually stroked pieces.
